The House of Representatives has urged the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to jettison the two weeks deadline for linking SIM cards to National Identity Number (NIN) and extend the deadline.
The decision followed a motion of urgent public importance moved by the Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu on Wednesday during plenary.
Elumelu in his motion explained that the House agrees with the policy of linking SIM cards to NIN, he explained that the policy is consistent with the position of the House.
He disclosed that the House even made recommendations to the NCC recently regarding the policy.
“As laudable as the policy is, Nigerians have not been properly sensitized. In this yuletide season, it could lead to stampede and exploitation.”
Opposing the amendment to extend the registration by 8weeks, Uzoma Abonta stated that 1year would be appropriate for the process.
However, the amendment for a one-year extension was rejected by the House.
