Subscribers Kick Against Friday Deadline, Demand Extension

Written by on March 28, 2024

National Association of Telecommunications Subscribers has requested an extension in the deadline scheduled for the disconnection of telephone lines not linked to National Identification Numbers beyond tomorrow.

The body argued that telecom agents were failing to capture all necessary information needed for verification, just as it also cited difficulties in uploading the captured data on the National Identity Management Commission’s server.

President of NATCOMS, Adeolu Ogunbanjo, told Journalists yesterday, that the NCC needed to order telcos not to disconnect telephone lines, considering the ongoing difficulties faced by subscribers.

According to the president, the Operator’s Consumer Centre stands as the primary location for consumers to complete their registration fully, with data provided there being verifiable.

However, the president noted that telecom agents were bypassing crucial information during the registration process, resulting in incomplete registrations of subscribers.

You would recall that the Nigerian Communication Commission had insisted that there would be no changes to the deadline for the next phase of disconnection.
