The registration of new SIM cards was suspended by the federal government last year.
The federal government lamented that the level of crimes being committed with SIM cards is high. This led to the compulsory linking of all SIM cards to NIN by all Nigerians although most Nigerians are yet to do so.
In a bid to reduce the level of crime, the federal government of Nigeria barred SIM registration last year December.
Nigerians should take note of this announcement made by the FG recently.
The Federal Government on Thursday said the issuance of new SIM cards will resume on April 19, “as long as verification is done and the guidelines are fully adhered to.”
