Federal Government Once Again Extends NIN-SIM Registration Deadline

For the uncountable time, the Federal Government has extended the deadline for linking the National Identity Numbers (NIN) to mobile phone lines.

At first, Nigerian’s were threatened with the blocking of their sim cards, but the court disproved this so, they have resolved to threatening Nigerians with 14 years of imprisonment which is the same sentence awarded to rapists in this country.

Could there be an ulterior motive on the part of the Federal Government into the linking of sim cards to one’s national identity number? If not, why the threats?
