Nigerians blow hot as they tackle NCC on the new order to block SIMS not registered with National ID

Nigerians have started reacting seriously after NCC gave an order to Telecommunication operators (MTN, Airtel, Glo and Etisalat) to block SIM cards not registered with National ID - NIN (National Identity Numbers).

The information was revealed by President Buhari's Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad on his Twitter page last night. It reads:
"The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has given telecommunications operators (MTN, Airtel, 9 Mobile and Glo) in country two weeks to block all SIM cards that are not registered with National Identity Numbers (NIN), the Commission has said in a statement."

Taking to their various Twitter pages, Nigerians began to tackle NCC heavily for its new order to telecommunication operators to block SIMS not registered with National ID. 

Reactions from Nigerians below:
Aisha Yesufu tweeted: "Someone cannot stay away from Internet for a few hours without major thing happening in Nigeria. Dem curse us? Which one be National Identity again?" 

Ebuka Obi-Uchendu tweeted: "So, foreigners can't own a SIM in Nigeria?" 

Kate Henshaw tweeted: "Driver's license - Whosai. 
International passport - Baabu. 
BVN - for where. 
National ID card - Nayheee. 
It's now NIN one needs to get a SIM. 
These people are not going to be satisfied till they bleed us dry and make this hell fiery fiery hot for us. Issokay."
