Last year, the federal government issued a directive ordering all Nigerians with SIM card to link their phone number with their NIN. This triggered a stir from Nigerians as many of them do not have a National Identification Number yet.
The government had given an ultimatum for the linking of NIN as failure to do so would result in blockage of SIM card.
Sunday Igboho’s spokesman has however revealed what federal government intended to do with the NIN. According to his post on Facebook, Mr. Koiki Olayomi said that the government planned to use it as Permanent Voter’s Card popularly known as PVC in the upcoming 2023 election.

This has however got people reacting online, see what they are saying about it;
Although the federal government has postponed the deadline for the registration and linking of NIN many times, some people are yet to get theirs.
Do you think Sunday Igboho’s spokesman is right on this?
