Nigeria’s Communications and Digital Economy Minister, Dr Isa Pantami , has said on that seven SIM cards can be linked to one National Identification Number on the National Identity Management Commission Mobile App launched recently, Njenje Media News reports.

The minister added that his ministry and NIMC are working on transforming the NIN enrolment process and the onward linkage to SIM cards as required by the Nigerian Communication Commission.

In his words;

“We developed an app, when you go online, you will see it. That app, as long as you have your NIMC number, you will only download it without visiting any office. You will be able to link up to seven SIM numbers to only one. I have already downloaded the app, launched the app, and already linked some of my numbers immediately. This is part of digitalisation,” he said.

Pantami made this known as a guest on on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme.

He also said the ministry, NIMC and telecommunication operators would review the entire NIN linkage to SIM cards by network users should the Federal Government impose a fresh lockdown amid the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

Njenje Media News recalls that the Federal Government has issued a deadline for mobile phone users to link their mobile numbers with their NIN or get it disconnected.
