NIN: Telecom Workers Reject 2 Weeks Deadline For Subscribers by ijustdey: 3:58pm On Dec 20, 2020
*Say it’s impossible to link 170m subscribers lines with NIN in 2 weeks

By Victor Ahiuma-Young

Workers in the nation’s Communications industry under the aegis of Private Telecommunications and Communications Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, PTECSSAN, weekend rejected the two weeks deadline given by the Federal Government to telecommunications operators to block subscribers’ lines that failed to link them up with the National Identification Number, NIN.

PTECSSAN in a statement by its President and General Secretary, Opeyemi Tomori​​​​​​ and Okonu Abdullahi, respectively, contented that it was impossible to achieve the deadline, saying “to register about one hundred and seventy million Nigerians that are yet to be registered within two weeks is a tall order that can never be met with the present encumbrances in the present approach of registering people.”

The union asked the federal government not to punish Nigerians for its ineptitude, lamenting that “We are disturbed by the insensitiveness of the federal government in this press statement. We are forced to believe that, as usual, the government wants to punish Nigerians for her own ineptitude.

At this point in time that there is pervasive hardship in the land brought about by banditry, terrorism, thuggery and increasing high cost of living occasioned by the government’s hike in electricity tariff and fuel pump price, we do not expect the government to impose a new and an avoidable hardship on Nigerians through this directive.

“Rather than issuing a deadline and threats on linking up the NIN to SIMs, what we believe the government should do is to address the bottlenecks encountered by Nigerians in the process of registration which have prevented majority of them from obtaining their NIN.

Is the government aware that it is only about forty-three Million Nigerians that have been able to obtain NIN since its introduction over seven years ago? To expect Nigerians to register and obtain NIN in order to link it up with their SIMs within two weeks what they could not obtain for these number of years beats our imagination.

“Nigerians have suffered immensely trying to obtain the NIN to no avail. Stories told by those that have registered are not pleasant. Some were leaving their homes for the registration centers as early as 4am daily for weeks before they could register. While those that could not withstand the rigor part with monies to hasten things up for them.

“We implore the government to withdraw the directive because it was not well thought out and is highly unachievable. To register about one hundred and seventy million Nigerians that are yet to be registered within two weeks is a tall order that can never be met with the present encumbrances in the present approach of registering the people.

“By giving two weeks to Nigerians that have not registered to do so will surely add more hardship on them. The Government is practically telling them to abandon their businesses and whatever they are doing that bring incomes for them within that long period of time.

“Also, with the second wave of COVID-19 in the country Nigerians will not be able to storm the registration centers without contracting the virus.

Furthermore, we are in the Yuletide period during which a lot of Nigerians travel across the country to celebrate with their families to ask them to register at this time is as good as putting paid to their festivities.

“In the light of the above we implore the government to rather shift its focus on getting more Nigerians registered seamlessly. Registration centers should be brought closer to the people. By this we are suggesting that there should be at least two registration centers in each of the wards throughout the federation.

“If and when all remaining Nigerians have been able to register and obtain their NIN they need not be bothered to link their NIN’s with their operators, the government through the National Identification Management Commission, NIMC, and Nigeria Communication Commission, NCC, should liaise with the telecoms operators to synchronize the NIN with the subscribers’ SIMs after all, the operators still rely on the NIMC to authenticate NIN provided by subscribers before they can link them up to their SIMS.

“We understand the importance of having a comprehensive database for the country and at the same time having NIN linked with SIMs we implore the government to adopt the best of approaches in putting them in place. All these can be done without necessarily causing hardship to Nigerians.”

Every sensible person or organisation knows it is impossible to do such within two weeks except our own govt.
FG will be giving out deadlines anyhow without thoroughly thinking how feasible it will be.

I was raised to always be appreciative and thankful no matter what condition and see the good in any situation.

So my appreciation is to buhari and those who voted for him am so grateful and this are my reasons.

1 before buhari came into power my weight status was 24.0 I was worried I was close to been called obsess so I tried a lot of exercise and vigorous task all came to no avail. Till buhari came into power is policies on the economy really affected me positively now am 18.5. In weight due to my change of eating habit, now on my good day I eat twice a day... Buhari has made me fit and make my body great again....

2 before buhari came into power I was a alcoholic, and it was really affecting me I was so dependent on it, I tried every step but after a couple of weeks I still go back to it.
Not until buhari came into power and the brillant economic plan and policy he made really affected me positively to not be able to finance my party and acholic lifestyle, now I can't afford it regularly so am now a occasional drinker. Thanks to buhari.

3 And finally my family and my friends use to complain I love women which to be sincere I do, in a week I have about 12 chichks who I put on roaster so as not to cause two people pulling there hair. This life style was so draining you have to keep up with the lying and hidden and the manipulation it involves.
But since buhari came into power my life have never been the same with is economic brilliance he was able affect my finance in a positive way now I can't keep those chiks on a roaster again am now a monk and a responsible guy, is just that I can't cheat nature I have to drop my monk mode and manage 1 chick. Thanks to buhari am now responsible man...

And before I go let me not forget to say once more thanks to buhari supporter without your support for him I won't have achieve what I achieve today thanks may God bless you

The end is near

There might not be an election in 2023

The secrets of the evil people ruling NIGERIA will be exposed between now and 2023

You'll understand, that there's an imposter in aso rock

Tinubu will be made a scapegoat

But his shame will be to the glory of God

The tribe of Judah will rise again and will take back the kingdom

These are parables

Govt that thinks blindly. Everything about Nigeria is done the wrong way. NIN registration should be one of the seamless means of data collection in Nigeria, but this is a big and daunting task for our politicians. Local govts don't even have the registration facility, yet we are talking of registering over 200m people.

Getting the NIN is where the problem lies....
Some people in the villages haven't even heard about this.
The two weeks deadline is unrealistic.
