Telcos Resume SIM Replacement

Federal government has granted telecommunications operators in the country the permission to carry out SIM card replacement upon verification of the subscriber’s National Identification Number (NIN).

According to a statement by Association of Licensed Telecommunications Operators of Nigeria (ALTON), “granting of the permission to carry out SIM replacement was fallout of engagements with government on the matter. In this regard, our members are working with NIMC to ensure seamless system connectivity for verification of NINs.”

The statement signed by Gbenga Adebayo, chairman, ALTON, further urged the continued patience and understanding of their esteemed subscribers as they work with all stakeholders towards speedily resolution of issues affecting SIM Registration/Swap and activation.

“We assure you of restoring normal services in a seamless and effective manner as soon as possible”.

ALTON however regrets the challenges experienced by customers seeking to replace or upgrade their SIM cards following the suspension of sale and activation of SIM cards by the government which also affected SIM replacement.
