Pantami: We Have Reduced Kidnapping, Banditry With NIN by Sigoal(m): 11:02pm On Jun 03
The Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Pantami has claimed that the policy compelling Nigerians to obtain a National Identification Number by the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has substantially reduced incidents of banditry and kidnapping.

Pantami made the claim, in Abuja, on Thursday, while rendering account of his stewardship since assuming office, in 2019.
He said, “When I was assigned to supervise the sector on 24, August 2019, unregistered, and partial registered sims were being used to perpetrate crime in the country. Nobody knew the total number of unregistered sims.

“Within less than 15 days in the office, we have engaged the NCC as a regulator. We have directed them to carry audit exercise to enable them come up with unregistered and partial registered sims. They came with around 9.4 million which is enough to populate another country. It was the first time we didn’t know the total of unregistered sims in the country.

“And we went further to direct NCC, to ensure that by 25th September 2019, that is only one month few days in office, I spent there to ensure that by end of September 2021, no sim that is not registered will be on our network. NCC as a regulator implemented that effectively.

“From end of September 2019, to 2020, you will discover that even kidnapping and banditry reduced to the barest minimum. It was a time that hardly can you spend one month or more without hearing about kidnapping.
“The more you come up with policies to make the system effective the more criminals will come up with another strategy to compromise the policies.”


He further explained that before the introduction of the policy, some unscrupulous Nigerians working in cahoots with a handful of agents of telecommunication officials engaged in illegally preregistering sim cards which were sold to criminal gangs to perpetrate crime.

Also speaking during the occasion, the Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communication Commission, Prof. Umar Danbatta, said just as the Commission and the Federal Government were working out policies to thwart plans by criminals, criminals were also evolving.

He noted that it was now sad that kidnappers now use the telephones of their victims to demand and receive ransom. Government, he said, was doing everything within its power to deal with the situation.

Is this a fücking joke? These terrorists literally just kidnapped 200 school kids yesterday! They've been kidnapping and killing students since over 4 months now but some how, Issa Terrorist Pandemic thinks NIN has curbed crimes.

The animal terrorist should tell that to the parents of green field university who either had their wards killed or they had to cough out over ₦100M as ransom for their children.

They should investigate this man's academic qualifications.
His CV claims he has a PH.D,but he doesn't reason and talk like someone that completed secondary school.
