NIN Update: Reps Seek For 10 Weeks Extension Deadline

The House of Representatives has asked the Federal Government to extend the deadline for the provision of the National Identification Number (NIN) by telecommunication service subscribers to 10 weeks.

The House, at the plenary on Wednesday, described the two weeks given to SIM card users by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to provide their NIN to service providers as grossly inadequate, Punch reports.

The Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu, had moved a motion of urgent public importance to demand more time.
