According to him, the already registered SIM cards are to be updated with the NIN before December 1, 2020.
He also directed the NCC to see to it that newly registered sim cards are registered with a NIN number for Nigerians while foreigners are to use their International passport or Visa.
“There should be a maximum number of SIM cards that can be tied to a single individual, possibly a maximum of 3;
Ensure that no unregistered SIMs are ever allowed on mobile networks; Ensure that subscribers can easily check the number of SIM cards registered to their name, along with the associated phone numbers and networks;
Ensure that SIM cards that have been used to perpetrate crimes are permanently deactivated,” the statement noted
