There will be no mass disconnection of telephone users over NIN – NCC

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has disclosed that there will be no mass disconnection of telephone subscribers over National Identity Numbers (NIN) linking.

The agency which said the current linking of SIM Card records with the NIN was aimed at enhancing general safety and helping the government to plan for national development.

The clarification became necessary as many subscribers had become scared that their lines might be disconnected over not linking their SIM card with their NIN

NCC’s Director of Public Affairs, Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde, advised the public to ignore speculations of mass disconnection being circulated in some sections of the media and also added that the publications “are based on the erroneous assumption that for every network or SIM connection, there is one unique human subscriber”.
