The Nigerian Communications Commission has installed more than 2,000 centres for the ongoing SIM cards registration across the c­ountry.

According to executive Vice-Chairman Eugene Juwah, the registration exercise would end on 28 September, noting that subscribers who had already registered with their service providers did not need to repeat the exercise with the centres appointed by the regulatory agency.

He added that before the NCC entered the SIM registration exercise, the commission and the operators met with the National Security Adviser, and that it was discovered that the operators had only registered 8 million out of 89 million SIM cards, leaving a balance of 80 million.

At that stage it was decided that the operators and the NCC should begin to register existing SIM cards that had not been registered.
