By Damilola Adeyemo

ABUJA – The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has said that there will be no mass disconnection of telephone subscribers over National Identity Numbers (NIN) registration. 

According to NAIJA EXHIBIT, The agency which said the current linkage of SIM registration records with the NIN was aimed at enhancing general safety and helping the government to plan for national development, the clarification became necessary as many subscribers had become jittery that their lines might be disconnected over NIN registration.

The report has it that NCC’s Director of Public Affairs, Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde, advised the public to ignore speculations of mass disconnection being circulated in some sections of the media and also added that the publications “are based on the erroneous assumption that for every network or SIM connection, there is one unique human subscriber”.
