The Nigerian Communications Commission has revealed that those who failed to link their Subscriber Identity Modules, SIM to their National Identity Numbers, NIN would not be able to obtain some important documents including driving licences and passports henceforth.

The NCC Director of Public Affairs, Dr Ikechukwu Adinde who disclosed this on Wednesday via a statement, said the October 31 deadline for the linkage remains sacrosanct.

The statement read, “NCC has reminded and urged telecoms consumers to link their NINs with their SIMs before the expiration of the deadline of October 31, 2021 set by the Federal Government.

“Soon, people without NIN will be denied necessary services that play vital roles in their lives including acquisition of driving licence, passport.”

Saga Gist reports that the Federal government had on December 15, 2020 ordered all telecommunication operators in the country to disconnect every SIM card not synchronized with valid National Identity Number (NIN) by December 30th.

However, the deadline has severally been extended as some Nigerians showed lackadaisical attitude towards the directive.
