Do You Know That Your Sim Card Has Been Barred From Calls? (Read This)

The Nigerian Government, on Monday, ordered telecommunications companies to bar outgoing calls on mobile lines not linked with the National Identification Number (NIN).

This was made known by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, in a statement on Monday. According to him, the move is part of the implementation of the NIN-SIM linkage Policy of the government.

The statement partly reads,

“President Buhari graciously approved the many requests to extend deadlines for the NIN-SIM linkage. At this point, however, Government has determined that the NIN-SIM Policy implementation can proceed, as machinery has already been put in place to ensure compliance by citizens and legal residents. The implementation impacts on the government’s strategic planning, particularly in the areas of security and socio-economic projections.

“President Buhari has approved the implementation of the policy with effect from the 4th of April, 2022. Consequently, the Federal Government has directed all Telcos to strictly enforce the Policy on all SIMs issued (existing and new) in Nigeria. Outgoing calls will subsequently be barred for telephone lines that have not complied with the NIN-SIM linkage Policy from the 4th of April, 2022.”

In case if you cant make calls, your network provider has barred your line from doing so.
