Buhari explains why Nigerians must link NIN with their SIM cards


President Muhammadu has said the ongoing synchronisation of National Identification Number (NIN) with SIM cards, will help identify people, including crooks.

Buhari stated this while inaugurating the National Policy for the Promotion of Indigenous Content in Nigerian Telecoms Sector and Revised National Identity Policy for SIM Cards registration at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday.

He urged Nigerians to fully participate in the exercise, which he explained will provide a digital framework for improving security and strengthening the economy.

“The NIN will cover one of the weaknesses in our security structure. We will be able to easily identify and know the personality of Nigerians. We will identify people easily, including the crooks,” Buhari said.

“The National Identification Number is the foundational digital ID for the country; both Nigerian citizens and legal residents are expected to obtain the NIN. It will provide access to government services and will give government useful insights that will enable us to utilize scarce resources in a more efficient way.”
