SIM-NIN: Telecom Consumers Set To Sue Nigerian Government, Demand Policy Suspension

TELECOMMUNICATION subscribers under the aegis of the National Association of Telecoms Subscribers have said they are set to drag the Federal Government to court in May in a bid to temporarily suspend the government’s barring of subscribers’ outgoing calls.

On Monday, April 4, the Federal Government ordered telecom companies to bar outgoing calls on all lines that have yet to link their National Identification Number and the Subscriber Identity Module.

As a result of this, about 72.77 million active telecom subscribers were barred from making calls on their SIMs.

In response to this, NATCOMS urged the Federal Government to extend the implementation of the SIM-NIN policy by three months. The association also gave the government one month to implement the ban.
