NCC To Block 9.2M Improper registered (Pre-registered) SIM Cards

The federal government through the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) has ordered “telecommunication operators in Nigeria to disconnect 9.2 million SIM cards without proper registration”.

In a recent report which was sent by the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) to the new Nigeria Minister of Communication Isa Pantami, it was disclosed that there are 9 million, 200 thousand SIM cards in the country that are not properly registered in accordance with the standard procedure.

According to the spokesperson of the minister Ms Uwa Suleiman she said,

The security implication of this irregularity is too grave to ignore and the Federal Ministry of Communications will not tolerate any actions or inaction’s that will compromise the nation’s security,

She also said that

Minister expressed concern over the security implication of this discovery and further directed that the Telecoms regulator, should with immediate effect, ensure that all improperly registered numbers are duly reregistered.

Now all the four major service providers (Glo, MTN, Airtel and 9Mobile) in Nigeria have released codes to confirm if your SIM is properly registered or not.

  1. Great post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed! Very helpful info specially the last part 🙂 I care for such information a lot. I was looking for this certain info for a long time. Thank you and best of luck.

  2. I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours these days, but I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful price sufficient for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the web will likely be much more helpful than ever before.
