Pantami said: “You will be able to link up to seven SIM numbers to only one. I have already downloaded the app, launched the app, and already linked some of my numbers immediately. This is part of digitalisation.”

Pantami also has said that the ministry, NIMC, and telecommunication operators would review the entire NIN linkage to SIM cards by network users if fresh lockdown is imposed in the country.

Recall he had earlier said that the enrolment for the National Identification Number (NIN) should not consume the time of the applicants.

The minister made this disclosure on Friday, January 8, during a programme on Channels TV, adding that the enrolment should not take more than five minutes.
