FG Extends Deadline For NIN – SIM Verification To October 31.

The Federal Government has extended the deadline for National Identity Number and Subscriber Identity Module data verification to October thirty-first.

This is contained in a statement jointly signed by Dr Ikechukwu Adinde, Director, Public Affairs, Nigerian Communications Commission and Mr Kayode Adegoke, Head, Corporate Communications, National Identity Management Commission in Abuja.

They said that the decision was reached following a request by stakeholders to accommodate registration in hard-to-reach remote areas, foreigners and diplomatic missions in the diaspora.

According to the officials, the extension is also to address low enrolments in schools and hospitals, as evidenced by enrolment statistics.

As at July twenty-fourth, 2021, there are over five thousand, five hundred enrolment systems within and outside the country and this will significantly ease the National Identity Number enrolment process and subsequent linkage of National Identity Number, to Subscriber Identity Module.
