FG. Direct NCC To Start The Use Of NIM For sim Registration And Restrict All Subscribers To Own A Maximum Of 3 Sim Cards per subscriber.
Before now, subscribers in Nigerians can have as much Sim cards as they wish, FG has directed NCC to revise their policy and restrict each subscriber to maximum of 3 sim cards.
The directive was based on security considerations and spam control.
the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isah Pantami directed the NCC to revise the policy on SIM card registration and usage, according to a statement issued by his Technical Assistant on Information Technology, Dr Femi Adeluyi, in Abuja on Wednesday
The revised policy would ensure that, henceforth, the National Identity Number would become a compulsory requirement for registration of new SIM cards in the country.
The new policy would also put a cap on the number of mobile phone lines or SIM cards that could be obtained and registered by an individual.
