No SIM card Will Be Blocked – Sam George Assures Stubborn Academy
Sam Nartey George, a member of parliament for Ningo-Prampram, has assured Ghanaians that their SIM cards won’t be stopped if they can’t re-register them by the due date. The deadline for SIM card re-registration has been set for September 30, 2022 by Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Minister for Communication and Digitalization. The initial expiration date of July 31, 2022, has been changed to September 30.
“After consulting the industry and taking into account the aforementioned obstacles, I have regrettably decided to give a final conditional extension,” said the minister, attributing the need for the extension to delays in the launch of a self-service registration software and the purchase of Ghana Cards, which are necessary for registration.
“The program will be extended until September 30 in order to conclude on the one-year anniversary of its inception. This will enable us one full year to evaluate SIM registration at the end of this month, and any SIM that has not been fully registered by the end of August would be denied access to certain services, such as phone and data services. Using unregistered SIMs will also incur additional costs. “An additional press conference will be held in September to outline the complete spectrum of disciplinary measures,” the minister indicated.
The National Communication Authority maintained the original deadline for the activity by announcing that all SIM cards not registered by September 30 would be rendered inoperable. Sam Nartey George tweeted on September 30 that unregistered SIM cards will not be prohibited after this coming Friday. “I am one hundred percent positive that NO SIM card will be blocked tomorrow! “This is a victory for the Ghanaian people who have been awaiting the NIA’s production of their Ghana Cards. For God and Country,” read portions of the tweet the representative shared.
