A statement signed by the duo of Engr. Gbenga Adebayo, Chairman; and Damian Udeh, Publicity Secretary, both of ALTON , said : We want to thank the President for giving us more time to deliver on this all-important assignment of creating a credible national identity database for the country. We are also grateful to the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ibrahim Ali Pantami, for his commitment to enabling digital economy.

To ensure that we utilize the extension period judiciously, we urge all telecom subscribers who have a NIN to link it to their SIM Cards through available channels as soon as possible. Those yet to enrol are advised to visit www.nimc.gov.ng for a list of enrolment centres close to them.
