KanyiDaily reports that over 100 million Nigerians are yet to link their SIM cards to National Identity Numbers (NIN), causing huge crowds to gather at the various offices of NIMC in breach of the COVID-19 protocol.

According to the communiqué, the strike had become necessary due to the exposure of staff to COVID-19 risks, lack of personal protective equipment, irregularities in promotion and poor funding.
