The Federal Government has issued a directive that all sim registrations be linked with a National Identification Number (NIN).
All customers without a NIN are advised to visit a NIN enrolment centre to apply and get a NIN.
All network providers has been issued a notice to disconnect/block any line not yet linked to NIN by December 31st 2020.
With this new development, all network providers have started bringing up ways to make this exercise less stressful for customers.
