How to unblock and link your NIN to your MTN, Glo, Airtel and 9mobile number

In December of 2020, the Nigerian President through the National Communication Commission (NCC) directed all citizens to link their phone number to thier National Identification Number (NIN) or risk getting their number blocked.

Although NCC has directed the telecommunication network providers to block the mobile phone number of all those who fail to link their SIM to thier NIN before the deadline, the deadline date have had to be extended multiple times due to low turnout by citizens.

Now, Dr. ISA Pantami who is the minister of communication has finally directed all telecom operators in Nigeria mainly Glo, MTN, Airtel and 9mobile to start barring all outgoing calls on SIM cards not yet linked to thier NIN and this takes effect from April 5th 2022.

So if you haven't linked your line yet, you will only be able to receive call but you won't be able to make outgoing calls. You can however still link your phone number if you want to start making calls again and the procedure is very simple as long as you already have your National Identification Number.
