FG extends NIN-SIM verification again to October 31

 

The Federal Government has once again approved the extension of the deadline for National Identity Number (NIN)-Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) data verification from July 26, 2021, to October 31, 2021.

The extension of the deadline follows a request by stakeholders to accommodate registration in hard-to-reach remote areas, foreigners and diplomatic missions, diaspora and address low enrolments in schools and hospitals, as shown by enrolment statistics.

The decision also came after a review of the progress of the exercise which indicated significant progress, hence the need to consolidate the gains of the enrolment and NIN-SIM verification process across the country.

This disclosure is contained in a statement jointly signed by Director, Public Affairs, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) Dr Ikechukwu Adinde and Head, Corporate Communications, National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) Mr Kayode Adegoke, on Sunday in Abuja.
