The Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, had earlier mandated the telecommunications operators in the country to block all SIM cards that are not registered with the National Identity Numbers (NIN) within 2 weeks.
Recall BlazeNewz reports that failure of the subscribers to register with NIN will lead to the blocking or disconnection of their line(s) by the end of December 31, 2020.
The Nigerian Identity Management Commission (NIMC) have also directed that subscribers can link their NIN to more than one sim card. They said telecom subscribers should take their NIN to the office of their service provider.

Here are a few steps to link your phone number with your NIN;
To link your NIN, simply dial *785# using the phone number you wish to link, enter your NIN and submit or;
Dial *785#Your NIN# from the phone number you wish to link. The number will be linked to your NIN automatically.

Complete the NIN linking form by entering your name, phone number, NIN, and email address.
Submit the form as soon as you’re done.
Wait for feedback from the network.
To link your NIN to your Airtel phone number, follow the steps below:
Dial *121# on the Airtel line you wish to link.
Type 1 for “NIN Capture” and send.
Enter your 11-digit NIN and send.
Wait for the message confirming your submission.
If you get an error, just wait for some time and try again.
Other networks (Glo and 9mobile)
For the other networks, you simply visit the nearest office of your service provider (Glo or 9mobile) to register/link your NIN.
Go with NIN and your SIM pack or call the customer care line of your service provider.
9mobile said it is making effort to develop a system that would make things simple for its customers. You can check your NIN status by dialling *346# from your 9mobile line.
