The Nigerian Communications Commission on Wednesday said it was awaiting the advice of the Federal Government as regards the deadline for the integration of Subscriber Identification Modules with valid National Identity Numbers.
It also stated that the earlier announced deadlines were still in force despite the clamour for extension or outright suspension of the registration process.
Calls for deadline extension were mainly due to the large crowds that gather daily at the various offices of the National Identity Management Commission.
The Director, Public Affairs, NCC, Ikechukwu Adinde, told our correspondent in Abuja that no deadline extension had been approved.
He said, “Right now, apart from the recent information that we made concerning the extension, no further update yet.
