Barrister Monday Ubani Sue FG, NCC, Attorney-Gen, Minister Over NIN SIM Card Re-Registration


A Former 2nd Vice-President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Barr. Monday Ubani, has asked a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos to stop the Nigerian government and Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, from disconnecting all SIM cards not linked to the National Identity Number, NIN.

In a law suit file by Barrister Ubani, he argued that the directive of government was unreasonable and the threat to block peoples SIM card is an expression of intent to infringe on their rights to property.

According to him, the two weeks ultimatum given for the SIM registration is “unreasonably too short and unreasonable and impracticable in view of the large population of Nigerians and the slow rate of registration by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).”
