STEPS] Get Your NIN Number And Link It To Your Mobile Number – MTN, Airtel, Glo, 9mobile, Other Users

Recently, Nigerians went into full panic mode after the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) gave all Nigerians a few days to link their National Identification Number (NIN) with SIM cards. This followed the announcement that all telecom subscribers without NIN would be blocked. However, NCC has now extended the time for linking the NIN with sim cards to 19th of January, 2021 for subscribers with NIN while those without NIN have until 9th of February, 2021 to register & link it. The NCC also stated that USSD and verification charges remain suspended during these extensions. Although the extension is a welcome development, it is important that you link your NIN to your mobile number as soon as possible. SEE: [PHOTO] NOT AGAIN!
