No Nigerian Should’ve More Than 3 Phone Numbers – Pantami by dre11(m): 12:36pm On Feb 05
The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali-Pantami has directed the National Communication Commission, NCC, to ensure that there should be a maximum number of SIM cards Nigerians should own, possibly a maximum of three.

The minister gave the directive on Wednesday in a statement signed by his Technical Assistant, Dr Femi Adeluyi, directing the NCC to revise the Policy on SIM Card registration and usage.

The statement also noted that the revision of the Policy is based on the feedback received from the security agencies, following the successful revalidation of improperly registered SIM cards in September 2019 and the blocking of those that failed to revalidate their SIMs.

The minister further directed the commission to ensure that the National Identity Number, NIN, becomes a prerequisite for Nigerians registering new SIM cards, while for foreigners, their passports and visas should be used.

According to him, the already registered SIM cards are to be updated with the NIN before December 1, 2020.

“Ensure that only fully accredited agents support the SIM card registration process without pre-registering SIM cards themselves, while the eventual registration should be done by the operators;

“There should be a maximum number of SIM cards that can be tied to a single individual, possibly a maximum of 3;

“Ensure that no unregistered SIMs are ever allowed on mobile networks;

“Ensure that subscribers can easily check the number of SIM cards registered to their name, along with the associated phone numbers and networks;

“Ensure that mobile network operators fortify their networks against cyberattacks and ensure that they adhere to the provisions of the Nigeria Data Protection Regulation (NDPR); and

“Ensure that SIM cards that have been used to perpetrate crimes are permanently deactivated,” the statement noted.

I think the ban on Nigeria by USA has started to generate result, having a database for the citizens of a country cannot be overemphasized. The federal government should find a way of synchronizing NIN, NIMC,TIN, BVN, VOTERS CARD into one for the effectiveness of the result they seek as well as making it easy for citizens .

But why e b say we go don collect b4 we get sense as a nation ..

Very good policy


I support Pantami on this.
What another great achievement by Buhari govt

If Nigerians start using only 3 Sim card
Security will increase.
There won't be Boko Haram, bandits, kidnapping, armed robbery nd herdsmen attack anymore.

There will be massive job opportunities that even foreigners will beg to come nd work in Nigeria

The rate of Naira exchange rin d market will be higher than dollars, pounce nd Euro.
This will automatically lead to fall in price of rice, cars, handsets nd all gud.
In fact Range Rover will be sold at #12,000

There will be good roads in d whole of Nigeria because all d roads will fix itself
There will be cheap houses that every young Nigerian at d age of 18 will own its own house.
There won't be army, police nd SARS intimidation.
Our hospitals will start functioning more than the ones in Dubai, Canada, London nd USA.
There will be free education
There will be no more election rigging.

Even Coronavirus will stop if Nigerians starts using 3 Sim cards.
Boko Haram will release all those they kidnap.

Please let's support this good idea from Pantami.
Me I will dispose all my sim cards, I will be reducing it to 2, please if u ar using more than 3 Sims destroy them nd keep only three

Poor policy.
Many people need multiple sims due to poor network and business needs.
What Nigeria needs is a centralized database and not the multiple registrations being conducted
by banks, NIS, Telcos, Ministries, and others.

With such a central system, anyone not captured can be banned from owning a SIM until they are captured
but should be able to own an unlimited number of SIMs tied to their identity.

It seems a good decision. Accurate and reliable data collection is a MUST if we're to be taken serious as a nation.

Government should however make porting from one network to another more easier..

No government official should travel out of the country for medical checkup while leaving the masses to suffer at the local hospitals they have diverted funds from.
