This new order was said to be given to reduce a large number of crowds at the offices of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC). This was made known to the public on Tuesday, January 26 by the Director-General of NIMC, Aliyu Aziz. What this means is that subscribers can now go to their various network providers and get their SIM Cards registered.
