The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has mandated the telecommunications operators in the country to block all SIM cards that are not registered with the National Identity Management Council (NIMC) within 2 weeks.

Following their directives, this means that failure of the subscribers to register with NIN will lead to the blocking or disconnection of the line by the end of December 31, 2020, despite the huge public outcry against the sudden announcement of the policy and short time frame to implement it.
