New SIM Registration Requires NIN
Nigerian communication commission (NCC) is finalizing arrangements to compel anyone seeking new SIM registration to produce his or her national identity number (NIN).
The commission says it has set in motion a machinery to enforce the new requirement.
Vice-chairman of the agency, Professor Umar Dambatta, announces the decision at the quarterly conference of the guild of corporate online publishers in Abuja.
Dambatta says the enforcement of the new requirement is part of measures to tackle the rising level of criminality in the country.
