Nigeria’s Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, has denied saying that Nigerians without National Identification Number (NIN) risk 14 years imprisonment.

Pantami said that he was quoted out of context, adding that he did not mention 14 years imprisonment.

He stated that the National Information Management Commission (NIMC) has been 14 years in existence since 2007.

He tweeted: “This has been quoted out of context. Pantami has not mentioned “14 years imprisonment.” But said NIMC has been 14 years in existence, since 2007. ”

Since the session has been recorded by journalists. It is better to release the video for public to listen to it, please. Best wishes!

Several media platforms had earlier reported that the minister said at the weekly presidential media briefing organised by the Presidential Communication Media Team in Abuja on Thursday, April 1, that Nigerians without NIN risk 14 years imprisonment.
