The Federal Government has again extended the deadline for National Identification Number and SIM data verification to October 31.

This was disclosed in a statement jointly signed by the Head, Corporate Communications, Nigeria Identity Management Commission, NIMC, Kayode Adegoke and Director, Public Affairs, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) Ikechukwu Adinde, on Saturday.

According to the statement, the decision to extend the deadline was made following a request by stakeholders to accommodate registration in hard-to-reach remote areas, foreigners and diplomatic missions, and diaspora, as well as address low enrolments in schools and hospitals.

It read, “The Federal Government has approved the extension of the deadline for NIN-SIM data verification to the 31st of October, 2021.”

“The decision to extend the deadline was made following a request by stakeholders to accommodate registration in hard-to-reach remote areas, foreigners and diplomatic missions, diaspora and address low enrolments in schools and hospitals, as evidenced by enrolment statistics.”

The statement further stated that 59.8 million unique NIN enrolments have been captured since the enrolment process began.
