The Nigerian Communication Commission has banned citizens below 18 from getting sim cards. It was drafted in the rules after a meeting. The rule read:
“Subscriber means a person not below the age of 18 years who subscribes to communications services by purchasing a subscription medium or entering into a subscription contract with a licensee.
The Licensee refers to ‘a provider of communications services that utilises a subscription medium in the Federal Republic of Nigeria”
The event, tagged Public Inquiry on the Registration of Telephone Subscribers Regulations, alongside the draft SIM Replacement Guidelines and the draft Spectrum Trading Guideline, was held at the NCC head office in Abuja on Tuesday.
What could this mean for Nigerians? Could this be a new development?
