The Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) have ordered network providers to block all SIM cards not linked to any National Identity Number (NIN). With the directive, there have been questions like
- How to link my MTN sim to NIN?
- How to link my Glo sim to NIN?
- How to link my Airtel sim to NIN?
- How to link my 9mobile/Etisalat sim to NIN?
- How to check if my sim is linked to my NIN?
We had earlier made a post on how to check my NIN number using short codes.
