You may likely be forced to re-register your sim or risk 25yr in prison

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) says a total of 95.7 million SIM cards being used by subscribers were not properly registered.

NCC officials said the agency will send the owners of the SIM cards back to registration centres for recapturing; otherwise perpetrators of fraudulently registered SIM cards will be charged with felony and risk a 25-year jail term.

Out of a total 151.4 million subscribers registered, only 55.7 million are valid.

“A total of 151,449,837 registration data of subscribers have been processed, with only 55,749,652 records valid, making 63.2 per cent of the total records invalid based on invalid face capturing and fingerprints”, thereby underscoring the importance of proper SIM registration,”

According to NCC, sanctions will extend to the head of marketing of mobile network operators and even the chief executives of licensees who illegally benefit from such illegal SIM registration activities to meet their marketing targets,

  1. Hmmmmm. Looks like end time don reach for those Airtel 4G sums with 4GB data for N400 without registration. ?‍♂️?‍♂️

  2. Is it by force to use a sim, I am not interested. Foolish n cc, this is what is interesting them instead of providing affordable and quality voice and data. This country is the hell fire you read about in your bible, believe that.
