Extension of Sim registration

Less than 24 hours, Reps called the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) to extend the two-week deadline for the implementation of the new sim registration rules till February 28, 2021.

Reps stated the below reasons why NCC should extend the sim registration:

“As laudable as the policy is, Nigerians have not been properly sensitized.

In this yuletide season, it could lead to stampede and exploitation”

Reacting to this, Uzoma Abonta also said that 12 months will be ideal for the process knowing fully well that over 50 Millions of Nigerians use Mobile network.

However, the 1-year extension proposed was later rejected by the house.
