The
Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has clarified earlier report, which quoted
the Commission to have said 95.7million subscriber SIM registrations are
invalid.





The Commission said the figure
quoted not invalid, but undergoing verification, emphasising that clarification
is for the benefit of subscribers and other critical stakeholders who rely on
subscriber registration data.





 Although the figures quoted in the
news reports were disclosed at a Sensitization Workshop to illustrate the
quality of initial data submissions, subsequent process enhancements by the NCC
and operators have led to better quality submissions. The process is ongoing,
and is constantly being reviewed for higher efficiency. NCC disclosed the
outcome of its initial scrubbing exercise at the Sensitization Workshop in
order to underscore the need for subscriber registration agents and operators
to ensure strict adherence to the Subscriber Registration Regulations of 2011
as well as the technical specifications for subscriber registration,   it said.





The Commission added that the
process of scrubbing registration data submitted by operators is an ongoing one
and that so far, over 60million records have been   scrubbed   successfully. It described
  Scrubbing   as a language in telecoms parlance, which refers to the screening
process of verifying biometric and personal information submitted by all
operators in respect of each of their subscribers.





It also encourages all subscribers
to ensure that their details are properly captured in order to avoid
unnecessary complications which may affect their banking, educational, health,
travel and other pursuits which rely on proof of personal identity.





 We also wish to assure all
stakeholders that the Commission will continue to aggressively pursue the
national interest objectives of delivering an accurate database of telephone
subscribers in Nigeria. We expect all players in the subscriber registration
value chain to support the national security objectives of the exercise as NCC
will continue to show zero tolerance for deviations from the process,   it
stated.
