inadequate satellite and other facilities are affecting monitoring of bandits
and other criminal elements operating in the country.

Buhari, who also noted that the synchronization
between NIN and SIM cards will determine the success of the ongoing war against
insecurity in the country, spoke at the launch of the National Policy for the
Promotion of Indigenous Content in Nigerian Telecoms Sector and Revised

identification of all Nigerians and legal residents in the country and the
ability to conveniently access a database will provide an impetus for more
effective planning and security oversight.

National SIM Policy was launched in February 2020, while the revised policies
are in full alignment with the objectives of the administration in the areas of
economic development, security, and anti-corruption.
