Nigerians under the age of 18 will not be eligible for SIM registration – NCC

Anyone under the age of 18 is ineligible to register and own a Subscriber Identity Module in Nigeria, according to the Nigerian Communications Commission.

According to a draft copy of the amended Registration of Telephone Subscribers Regulations posted on the NCC’s website, this is the case.

The NCC updated the regulations to limit telecoms subscribers to those over the age of 18.

“A person under the age of 18 who subscribes to communications services by purchasing a subscription medium or entering into a subscription contract with a licensee is referred to as a subscriber.”

The Licensee is described as a “provider of communications services in the Federal Republic of Nigeria that uses a subscription medium.”

The regulations were enacted in accordance with the commission’s powers under 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.
