The House of Representatives has asked the Federal Government to extend the deadline for NIN SIM registration by telecommunication service subscribers to 10 weeks.
Recall, GoldenNewsNg earlier reported that NCC has Given MTN, Glo, Airtel, Others 2-Weeks Ultimatum To Block SIM Cards Without NIN
Following the above report, GoldenNewsNg gathered that the House, at the plenary on Wednesday, described the two weeks given to SIM card users by the Nigerian Communications Commission to provide their NIN to service providers as grossly inadequate.
The Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu, had moved a motion of urgent public importance to demand more time.
Adopting the motion, the House resolved that the exercise should end on January 28, 2021, as against December 30, 2020.
