The Federal Government has said on Monday that there was no going back in the NIN verification exercise as criminals were now feeling the implication of the exercise
According to the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, the heat was currently being felt by criminals because the NIN-SIM verification policy was introduced to fight insecurity in Nigeria.
The Minster made this known in series of tweets via his official Twitter handle.
He said there was no going back on the NIN-SIM verification exercise.
The tweets read: “On the issue of NIN-SIM verification to fight insecurity, there is no going back. Our priority as a government based on the provision of our constitution 1999 (as amended) Section 14(2)b is security, not just economy. For sure, no going back at all.
“FYI (for your information) all, by the Almighty, no amount of intimation will stop @IsaPantami from implementing the good policies of President Muhammadu Buhari on security.
“Finally, if you are yet to verify your SIM using NIN, do it very soon, before our next action. Criminals are feeling the heat.”
