The Alausa office of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) in Lagos today Monday witnessed Large crowd gathering as the country continues to battle with a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The federal government, through the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy, this month issued a two-week ultimatum to all telecommunications operators in the country to block all Subscriber Identification Modules (SIMs) without National Identification Number (NIN).

The Monday rush is connected to the ultimatum as Nigerians attempt to register for the NIN and beat the federal government’s deadline for SIM deactivation.

The House of Representatives has asked NCC for an extension as the two-week ultimatum wont be possible, but rather give a ten weeks ultimatum to allow people register.

The Commission is yet to make a public reversal of its notice as of Monday.

The Lagos state government on Friday announced a slew of COVID-19 restrictions.

Although there was no blanket ban on public gatherings of people under 300, a minimum of two meters’ distance between seated or standing guests is required.

On Sunday, Nigeria recorded 501 new confirmed COVID-19 cases and 3 deaths.
