Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has ordered telecommunications companies to stop the sale and activation of Subscriber Identification Module (SIM).
This comes ahead of an audit of the Subscriber Registration Database.
According to Ikechukwu Adinde, the Director, Public Affairs, said on Wednesday that the directive would be in effect until the audit is completed.
The Director also noted that the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, instructed the NCC to conduct the exercise.
Though, an exemption might be granted if the federal government approves.
The Nigerian Communication Commission warned that non-compliance by network operators could lead to a withdrawal of operating licenses.
The inspection is to ensure that the firms comply with quality standards and requirements needed.
