A large number of telecommunication subscribers trying to link their National Identification Number and Subscriber Identity Module together were left frustrated on Wednesday as heavy traffic on telecom networks slowed down the process.
This is coming after the Federal Government through telecom companies barred Nigerians who had not linked their SIMs and NINs together from making calls
The Federal Government had directed telecom companies to block outgoing calls on all unlinked lines after the deadline for the SIM-NIN verification exercise expired on March 31.
On Wednesday, telecom service centres were jam-packed as subscribers rushed to link their SIMs and NINs.
However, because of the slow pace of the network, service centres couldn’t help many Nigerians that were stranded.
