Fully recognizing the importance of a strong national identity system and the critical contribution it will make to the accelerated growth of Nigeria’s digital economy even as the COVID-19 pandemic has made the role of digital communications, products and services more important in people’s daily lives and appreciating the national challenge to ensure that the building blocks are in place to enable them to be provided safely and securely, to all, the Association of Licensed Telecommunications Operators of Nigeria(ALTON) has thrown its weight behind the federal government’s directive on new SIM registration and integration of SIM with the National Identity Number(NIN).

In a statement inked by both the Chairman Engr. Gbenga Adebayo and Publicity Secretary of ALTON Damian Udeh, respectively, the association says it is committed to working closely with all stakeholders to overcome this challenge and deliver an inclusive, value adding digital economy Nigeria can be proud of.

ALTON says it fully understands the vital role that digital operators, have to play in this process and its members are collectively committed to investing in the systems, processes and support structure that are required to enable it.

Says ALTON: “In line with that, we wish to communicate our intention to fully comply with the two directives issued by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) in the past week, and to work closely with them to overcome this challenge, together.

“We understand that this process will be inconvenient for subscribers, and we are committed to ensuring we provide the information and support that you will need to manage this transition.

Our focus is on minimising the disruption that it will cause and as the delivery mechanisms are developed, we will provide further information.

We continue to seek for your cooperation and understanding as we work with Government in ensuring a reliable National Identity Ecosystem.”
