I Did Not Say Nigerians Without NIN Linked Sim Will Be Imprisoned For 14 Years


Minister for Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, has made clarifications on earlier statement in which he said Nigerians without National Identification Number , NIN, risked 14 years in jail.

The Minister while speaking in an available video said he was misquoted.

He had in the earlier statement said that registration for NIN is not optional, but a mandate by law, warning that failure to enroll precludes defaulting citizens and residents from operating certain functions like using banks and communication services.

Clarifying further, Pantami noted that he meant NIMC has been 14 years in existence, since 2007.
