0

The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim (Pantami) has directed the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to remove the N20 USSD fee imposed on subscribers for NIN retrieval requests.

The Spokesperson to the Minister of Communications & Digital Economy, Uwa Suleiman (Mrs) in a statement said, the Minister’s directive which takes immediate effect, was an intervention aimed at making the process easier and affordable.

In a letter conveying the implementation of the directive, the Executive Vice Chairman NCC and the Director General of NIMC, informed Dr. Pantami that the relevant authorities had met with, and negotiated a waiver with the Mobile Network Operators in that regard.

By this waiver, all Nigerians, subscribers and applicants can access the service using the *346# code for their NIN retrieval at no charge for the duration of the NIN/SIM Card integration exercise.

Recall that the Federal Government had earlier directed that all National Identification Numbers be integrated with Subscriber Identification Modules for security purposes..

The Honourable Minister appreciates the efforts of all stakeholders and encourages them to continue to sacrifice more for national interest.
