New Update: NCC Gives Nigerians 2 Weeks To Update SIM Card Record by vwegba1(m): 11:14pm On Dec 15, 2020
Update SIM Card Record: Few days ago the Nigeria Communication Commission stopped all Mobile Service Providers (MSP) in the country to stop SIM card registration. It seems there is going to be more to that as they release new updates regarding already registered users.

The Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Ibrahim (Pantami) convened an urgent meeting of key stakeholders in the Communications industry on Monday, December 14, 2020.

This meeting included Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) and Management of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), as well as the CEOs and Management staff of all service providers in the industry.

At the conclusion of the meeting, all parties involved saw the need to improve the performance and sanity of the sector. And after much deliberation, all stakeholders agreed that urgent drastic measures have now become inevitable to improve the integrity and transparency of the SIM registration process.

So below is the new directive from NCC regarding SIM card registration and already registered SIM card records.

Update SIM Card Record: What NCC wants from Mobile Operators and Nigerians

All network operators in the country is expected to:

1. Affirmation of the earlier directive to totally suspend registration of NEW SIMs by all operators.

2. Operators to require ALL their subscribers to provide valid National Identification Number (NIN) to update SIM registration records.

3. The submission of NIN by subscribers to take place within two weeks (from today December 16, 2020 and end by 30 December, 2020).

4. After the deadline, ALL SIMs without NINs are to be blocked from the networks.

5. A Ministerial Task Force comprising the Minister and all the CEOs (among others) as members is to monitor compliance by all networks.

6. Violations of this directive will be met by stiff sanctions, including the possibility of withdrawal of operating license.

What is NCC actually requesting Nigerians and Mobile Operators to do?

1. For mobile operators to update the SIM card registration of all their customers.

2. That Nigerians should get ready to spend the next two weeks making themselves available to update their SIM card records.

3. The valid document for update is the NIN. So go and get one now.... Read full article and FAQs from the source below
