Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, made the appeal while warning Nigerians that any crime committed using their SIM would be traced back to them.

He stated this at the end of a review meeting of the Technical Implementation Committee under the Ministerial Task Force, on Monday, January 18, 2021.

This comes amidst rising anxieties over SIM-NIN connection by many mobile network subscribers in the country.

Pantami urged Nigerians to do all they can to secure and protect their NINs, and desist from selling their NINs or allowing others to use their NINs for registration.

“For any action committed with the SIM, good or bad, it will be officially traced and attached to the NIN owner,” he said.
