The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has released an update on the National Identification Number (NIN)-Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) exercise.
Naija News recalls that the Federal Government had directed all telecommunication operators to bar all outgoing calls from unlinked SIMs.
Following the blockage of all outgoing calls, affected subscribers have thronged various enrolment centres in the country to link their NIN to their SIMs and register for their NIN.
The deactivated subscribers have also lamented the frustrations of not being able to make calls due to the blockage of the lines.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, NIMC informed Nigerians that it has over 15,000 NIN enrolment centres in the country.
The commission added that it has over 150 centres in 40 countries outside the country, asking Nigerians to check its website to check the NIN enrolment centre closer to them.
“Dear Nigerians/Legal Residents, please be informed that the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has over fifteen thousand (15,000) NIN enrolment centres across the 36 States and the FCT.
“There are over 150 centres in 40 countries in the Diaspora. Kindly click on the link to check the NIN enrolment centre closer to you,” the statement reads.
