The Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, has given a fresh directive to all telecommunication operators in the country.
The operators are given a two-week ultimatum to block all SIM cards that are not registered with National Identity Numbers, NIN.
The NCC warned that any operator who failed to comply with the directives risk a heavy penalty or outright withdrawal of its license.
In a statement by the NCC Director of Public Affairs, Dr. Ikechukwu Adindu, noted that “following the earlier directive on the suspension of new SIM registration by network operators, the Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Ibrahim (Pantami) convened an urgent meeting of key stakeholders in the Communications industry on Monday, December 14, 2020.”
NCC warned that non-compliance would meet a severe punishment or license withdrawal.
