FG EXTENDS THE DEADLINE FOR SIM/NIN DATA VERIFICATION
Written by Sarah Osanyinlusi on June 29, 2021
The federal Government has approved the extension of the deadline for NIN/SIM data verification to July 26.
The deadline date has been shifted for about seven times. The first deadline was December 30, 2020, two weeks after the exercise started in the country.
The latest decision to extend the deadline was made after a request by stakeholders on the need to consolidate the enrollment and NIN/SIM verification process following the rapid increase in the number of enrollment systems across the country.
As at June 28, a total of 5,410 enrollment systems are now available across the country and this would significantly ease the NIN enrollment process and subsequent linkage of NIN to SIM.
