Criticism trails NCC’s directives to block SIM cards

Meanwhile, backlashes have begun to trail the new rule by the NCC mandating telecommunication operators to block SIM cards that are not linked with the National Identity Numbers (NIN) by January 2021.

This is as Nigerians on social media condemned the development and described it as a misstep just to frustrate the angry population.
