 Nigeria NIN/SIM further update


London and Lagos, 07 April 2022: On 5 April 2002, Airtel Africa, a leading provider of telecommunications and mobile money services, with a presence in 14 countries across Africa, provided an update on the NIN/SIM registrations process in Nigeria. Today, Airtel Africa provides a further update.

With effect from 4 April 2022, all SIMs that have not been linked to a NIN will have only their outgoing voice calls barred with immediate effect.

Outgoing voice revenues for those active subscribers who have not yet linked their NIN with their SIM amount to around 8% of total revenues from Nigeria, and around 3% of total revenues for the Group.

We continue to work closely with the regulator and will make every effort to minimise disruption and ensure affected customers can continue to benefit from full service connectivity as soon as possible; in line with our aim to drive increased connectivity and digital inclusion across Nigeria.
