Mobile phone users shouldn’t hold their service providers responsible for the inability to register their SIM cards, according to Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Minister for Communication and Digitalization.
She claims that people who fail to register their SIM Cards via the Ghana Card will soon face a full range of disciplinary actions.
In this regard, she emphasized in a Facebook post on Wednesday that “the entire nature of the sanctions will be revealed in a subsequent press conference in September.
Please do not point the finger at your service provider if you end up in that situation as a result of your own inaction.
Being prepared means being forewarned.
She said in her post that, “After evaluation at the end of August, it has been concluded that initiating the disciplinary actions specified in the NCA news release is reasonable,” stressing further that her organization will not extend the deadline for the registration of SIM Cards in the nation.
Additionally, voice and Internet services will not be available to any SIM that has not yet finished the registration process.
Following that, using unregistered SIMs will cost extra.
The sector minister’s remarks were made at a time when many Ghanaians are still complaining that they can’t register their SIM cards.
Because so many residents have been unable to complete the process, it suggests that this problem is widespread.
