How To Link Your SIM Cards With NIN

Network providers in Nigeria have unveiled various steps their subscribers can adopt to link their SIM cards with the National Identification Number (NIN). 

The development comes after a recent directive by the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC) that all SIM cards without NIN will be blocked from December 30, 2020.

It also comes after the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) announced that Nigerians could check their NIN on phone by dialing *346#.
