Telecommunications subscribers have tackled the Federal Government over the two-week deadline handed Nigerians to link their Subscribers Identification Modules (SIM) cards with their National Identity Number (NIN).

Meanwhile, about 45 million Nigerians are captured on NIN. This implies that at least 20 million Nigerians may have their SIMS blocked on January 1, 2021, if the deadline is not extended.
Subscribers, who took to the social media to pour out their frustrations on the directive by the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy and the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), wondered how the large population yet to be listed on NIM would be captured in two weeks.
