In a series of tweets, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Ali Pantami, warned Nigerians yet to link their NINs (National Identification Numbers) to their SIMs of dire consequences.
Some of his tweets read:
“If you are yet to verify your SIM using NIN, do it very soon, b4 our next action. Criminals are feeling the heat.”
“On the issue of NIN-SIM verification to fight insecurity, there is no going back. Our priority as GOVERNMENT based on the provision of our constitution 1999 (as amended) Section 14(2)b is SECURITY, not just economy. For sure, no going back at all. Let’s the sponsors continue.”
