    NCC: Nigerians below 18 not allowed to own SIM cards

    SIM

    Nigerian individuals under the age of 18 will be prohibited from owning a Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) card, according to the Nigerian Communications Commission.

    This was revealed by the commission in a recent announcement on its official website.

    According to a draft copy of the updated Telephone Subscribers Regulations obtained by reporters, only subscribers above the age of 18 are eligible for SIM cards.

    The new regulation, according to the commission, was in keeping with the authority granted to it by section 70 of the Nigerian Communications Act, 2003.

    On Tuesday, the NCC held a Public Inquiry on the Registration of Telephone Subscribers Regulations, as well as draft SIM Replacement Guidelines and draft Spectrum Trading Guidelines, at its Abuja headquarters, in accordance with Section 57 of the Act.

    MTN, the telecommunications behemoth, has objected to the new regulations, particularly the age limit, claiming that the age limit should be 14 rather than 18 as stated by the commission.

    The NCC, on the other hand, maintained its position, stating that the age limit is still 18 years.
