“We Have Reduced Kidnapping And Banditry With NIN” – Pantami

Dr. Isa Pantami

The Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Pantami has said that the policy compelling Nigerians to obtain a National Identification Number, has substantially reduced incidents of banditry and kidnapping.

Pantami made the claim, in Abuja, while rendering account of his stewardship since assuming office, in 2019.

He further explained that before the introduction of the policy, Nigerians working with a handful of agents of telecommunication officials engaged in illegally preregistering sim cards which were sold to criminal gangs to perpetrate crime.
