FG Again Extends NIN Deadline By 8 Weeks by fergie001: 7:43am On May 04
The Federal Government through the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy, has on Tuesday announced the extension of the deadline for the NIN-SIM linkage and verification by eight weeks, till June 30, 2021.

The extension which was disclosed in a jointly signed statement by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), is said to be because of requests by stakeholders so as to make it easier for all citizens and legal residents to register.

The meeting which was chaired by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami, was attended by the the Executive Vice Chairman/CEO of NCC, Prof Umar Dambatta, the Director-General/CEO of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), Engr Aliyu Azeez, amongst others.

The statement read in part: “The postponement of the deadline was also based on the request by stakeholders for an extension till 30th of June in order to make it easier for all citizens and legal residents to register.

“Significant progress has been made in the NIN-SIM verification process. For example, almost 54 Million people have obtained their NIN and this can translate to up to 190 Million mobile numbers, since empirical evidence suggests that each unique NIN maps to 3 to 4 phone lines. The much awaited Android enrolment system is now ready for deployment and this has the potential to significantly accelerate the speed and ease of enrolments.

“Furthermore, the telecom providers and other enrolment agents have also opened several centres across the country to make it easier for eligible citizens and residents to obtain and link their NINs.”

“The Federal Government has approved the extension as part of its effort to make it easier for its citizens and residents to obtain the NIN and it is important to take advantage of the extension. Dr Pantami wishes to thank Nigerians for their patience and compliance with the Federal Government’s directive on the NIN-SIM registration exercise. He again reiterated government’s commitment to continually taking decisions aimed at easing the pains of the citizens with regard to issues related to NIN and SIM registration.”

OUR STAND on NIN continues........

FarahAideed:
Are u okay with Pantami continuing as a minister?
No he is not,
BUT,

Odewaleadesoye:
Great one
Nevertheless, #ArrestPantami
SECONDED.
After thorough investigation, if found guilty, he should be arrested or resigned honourably.

With all without Pantami, the NIN must go on with the next person coming in.

NIN is not Patamin's family business that will stop if he is removed, so do not get it confused.
NIN is not about a person but about our darling Country moving forward.

A better Nigeria is all we want.
A better Nigeria is what we shall get.
God bless Nigeria.

Addendum:
Notice to Fraudsters and Criminals : With or Without Pantami, According to Law, YOU MUST LINK YOUR SIM WITH YOUR NIN.
And save millions of Nigeria (starting from your family
members and friends (God forbid) from being scammedaor kidnapped.


Odewaleadesoye:
More respect boss.
Thanks Mr Odewale.
God bless you.

thatigboman:
thanks. Reply u on a different post before this.
Me, i do not have anything against u.

Useless good for nothing government. Just pity yourself if you have hope in this useless good for nothing Nigerian government

Why postpone it, I thought that terrorist sympathizer Pantami said 14-yrs jail term await NIN defaulters.

I wonder the jail terms that awaits Bokoharams, bandits and killer Fulani herdsmen when they refuse to register their NIN or link it to their sim.

We know their plan, NIN is for social media regulation

Bandits Kidnappers will use their victims phone numbers registered with NIN

A lot of Nigerians are now worried that their sensitive data will be in the hands of a terrorist sympathiser and supporter.

After capturing my data for Voter's card registration and BVN, you can't synchronise it to automatically create NIN for me.

You want me to go and waste productive time on another registration.


Wahala for who wan give Northern terrorists access to his private data.



Even if they start paying citizens to register... I will not register!
