The announcement was made on Tuesday morning via the National Identity Management Commission’s Twitter platform. The initial deadline slated for the 9th of February 2021 will leave an ample number of the population disconnected by network operators as official reports claim that a total of 56.18 million NINs have been collected by the operators.
