 The federal government has extended for National Identification Number update to three weeks.

The deadline for National Identification Number update has been extended.
 
The extension order was given today by the Federal Government.
 
Recall that the NCC had last week ordered telecommunications companies to within two weeks suspend phone subscribers who have no NIN.
 
But the House of Representatives and several Nigerians had expressed concern over the sudden directive, asking that the deadline be extended.
 
Issuing a statement on Monday, the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy extended the deadline by three weeks, from 30th December.
 
The statement titled, ‘Extension of Registration Period and Cancellation of USSD and Verification Fees’, was jointly signed by the Executive Vice-Chairman, Nigerian Communications Commission, Umar Danbatta; and Director-General, National Identity Management Commission, Aliyu Aziz.
 
It read, “The National Task Force on National Identification Number and SIM Registration met today, 21st December, 2020.

“The meeting was chaired by the Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Ali Pantami with major stakeholders in the sector including Chairman – NCC, EVC-NCC, DG-NITDA, DG-NIMC, ECTS/ECSM-NCC, Chairman ALTON, CEOs of MTN, Airtel, Ntel, Glo, Smile, and 9Moble in attendance.

“Based on the endorsement of the Federal Government of Nigeria, the following resolutions were made:

“Three (3) weeks extension for subscribers with NIN from 30th December, 2020 to 19th January, 2021; and

“Six (6) weeks extension for subscribers without NIN from 30th December, 2020 to 9th February, 2021.”
 
The statement further stated, “NIMC has provided strategies to enable citizens attend the registration in full compliance with Covid-19 protocols – particularly the use of facemasks which remains mandatory and maintenance of social distancing.”
