In the notice below, the National Telecommunications Commission has requested that all mobile network carriers link all customers' NINs to the SIM card registration procedure.
"The public is hereby informed that NATCOM/NatCA has directed Mobile Network
Operators (MNOS) to integrate every subscriber mobile number to the National
dentification Number (NIN) issued by National Civil Registration Authority (NCRA).
After several engagements with MNOs and NCRA, a technical implementation committee for the NIN-SIM integration has been created.
This public notice serves to prepare the mind of subscribers for the NIN-SIM integration.
On completion of the Applications Programming Interface (API), a two week time line will be given to finish the integration.
After this set time, subscribers whose phone numbers have not been integrated to their NIN will be deactivated on all networks.
Subscribers are therefore encouraged to register/re-register their SIM cards using their NIN in order not to lose the opportunity to make calls, access the internet and do other digital transactions
While NATCOM/NatCA continues to provide the enabling environment to deepen
broadband penetration and strengthening connectivity in voice and data, MNOs
are urgéd to fully comply.
Is good initiative but difficult for the illiterate majority people..ReplyDelete
