Ogunbanjo also pointed out that on Saturday, July 6, 2013, he was on NTA Network Live Interview with Tony Ojobo of NCC a new SIM Card Registration window for subscribers opened for those affected by deactivation of their SIM cards.

According to him, the NCC latest window is now the only opportunity for disconnected subscribers in Nigeria to have their SIM Cards registered re-activation.

Subscribers whose’ SIM Cards have been deactivated, he said, are advised to go to the nearest Customer Care Centre of their network operator for registration and subsequent re-activation.
