Every day, more individuals join the crowds forming outside telecoms offices throughout Port Harcourt.
As more subscribers became aware of their incapacity to make calls, this trend continued.
After the deadline for the SIM-NIN link expired on March 31, the Federal Government issued a directive to telecommunication carriers to block lines not linked to the National Identification Number, NIN.
Meanwhile, residents of Port Harcourt say they are being billed to link their NIN at some NIMC registration locations after their lines have been banned by network operators.
Some of them noted that they are charged between N4000 and N6000 to register or link their NIN to their mobile numbers.
They did, however, request that the government and NIMC authorities extend the registration date and simplify the process.
