Nigerian government insists on NIN registration deadline

Despite criticisms from many Nigerians of the two-week ultimatum for the registration and linking of National Identity Number (NIN) to mobile numbers, the federal government has insisted on the deadline.

The director-general of the National Identity Management Commission, (NIMC), Aliyu Abubakar, in an interview with Premium Times on Friday said there was no extension for the announced deadline.

“Right now, the way it is, there is no extension. We should not be complaining, rather we should see how it can be done,” he said.

“It is until after 10 to 12 days then we will see how far it has gone before we beg the government for anything.”

When the agency issued a two-week ultimatum for the enrolment, Nigerians took to social media platforms to kick against such a deadline.
