The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, has said seven SIM cards can be linked to one National Identity Number (NIN) on the recently launched National Identity Management Commission’s (NIMC) mobile application.
The Minister made this remark while speaking on Channels TV Politics Today show, Friday.
He said his ministry is collaborating with NIMC “to transform the NIN enrolment process and the onward linkage to SIM cards as required by the Nigerian Communication Commission.”
“We developed an app when you go online, you will see it. That app, as long as you have your NIMC number, you will only download it without visiting any office. You will be able to link up to seven SIM numbers to only one,” he said.
“I have already downloaded the app, launched the app, and already linked some of my numbers immediately. This is part of digitalisation,” he added.
