Prince Ukuanovwe Godstime Oj, a renowned Nigerian language advocate and human rights activist, who is the South-South Organizer of the Intellectual Young Leader’s Network, IYLN and Member State Executive Council of the Human Rights Update Conference, represented civil society organisations, while Amb Ikpesu Andrew represented a wide crowd of SIM registration officers.

The protesters demanded that the federal government should take precedence over the Nigerian Communication Commission, the NCC to immediately restore SIM registration and sales and ask people to apply NIN at the point of registration because it is a spontaneous process to connect and upgrade the NIN.
