GSM Telcos lose N1.1 billion to SIM Card registration ban

What a Nigerian thing. Why do we ever have to suspend registration?

RESEARCH ANALYSIS GSM Telcos lose N1.1 billion to SIM Card registration ban

Nairametrics Research conducted an analysis of the likely losses incurred by GSM Companies due to the SIM Card registration ban.

Specifically, the total subscriber base of the four major telco firms in Nigeria, reduced from 207.58 million at the end of November 2020 to 195.73 million in February 2021. This represents a 5.71% decline within the space of three months.

Can't we just make things seamless and easy for ourselves.

Bad policies and unrealistic regulations everywhere.

Some of the changes added to the registration process could have be done "overnight" without having to stop the registration process.

A lot of expatriate and citizens have had to buy illegal SIMs —already registered just to transact in Nigeria

We can do better as a country.
