14 Years Imprisonment For Not Having NIN - Pantami Says He Was Misquoted by fergie0o1: 7:20pm On Apr 01
Isa Pantami, Minister for Communication and Digital Economy, has denied saying that Nigerians without National Identification Number (NIN) risk up to 14 years in jail.

He was quoted earlier in a report warning that failure to obtain the NIN could lead to as much as 14 years imprisonment.

....registration for NIN is not optional, but a mandate by law, warning that failure to enroll precludes defaulting citizens and residents from operating certain functions like using banks and communication services.

He also warned that failure to obtain the NIN could lead to between seven or 14 years imprisonment as stipulated by the Nigerian Constitution, no one should enjoy government services without the number.


He has now offered clarifications.

This has been quoted out of context. Pantami has not mentioned "14 years imprisonment." But said NIMC has been 14 years in existence, since 2007. Since the session has been recorded by journalists. It is better to release the video for public to listen to it, please. Best wishes!

Dr. Isa Pantami, Nigeria's Comms & Digital Economy Minister

The Federal Government extended NIN-SIM linkage's deadline to the 6th of April, 2021, with an ultimatum to telcos to block all SIM cards not involved in the linkage process.

However, Justice Maureen Onyetenu of the Federal High Court, Lagos on March 24, ordered the extension by two months in a suit brought by a legal practitioner, Monday Ubani.

“An order halting the said ultimatum given by the 1st, 3rd and 4th Respondents to telecommunication operators to block all SIM Cards that are not registered with NIN." .. Justice Onyetenu ruled.

“Failure to have a NIN means 14years of existence “

Maybe this was what he said.

Misquoted, Misinterpreted, Doctored, Photoshopped or Nursed
...Dr. Isa, you and your Oga are still clueless!

Anyways, I wonder how 7-14 years prison sentences and 14 years of an agency's existence now sound like homophones to reporters

Past experiences have made me realise that this administration's damage control only wreck more damage and insults rationality.

Well, I am not surprised. It is so typical of ineffectual sparogators!
