MTN Nigeria SIM card registration ?

This is currently how MTN’s SIM registration exercise works; some roadside kiosks offering telephone services including those that sell accessories and recharge cards now have MTN branded notices announcing that they register SIM cards. When you walk in, you are asked to fill out a form which requires you to disclose such information as your full name, date of birth, occupation, address and phone numbers. Your thumbprints are taken along with a digital passport.
As tempted as I am to make deriding comments - Nigeria is a caricature of a country on life support - I would head up and read more on this before further comments.
Suffice to say, though, that imagining the scenario painted out there, less of its implications for a minute is scary...
