Deactivation of unregistered SIM cards uninformed – Sam George

The legislator claims that the minister’s order to MNOs to ban data services for unregistered SIMs is ill-advised and must be overturned.

Sam George claims that this policy viewpoint demonstrates the Minister’s inadequacy for the post she has in addition to being ignorant.

Mrs. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful had previously hinted at potential sanctions for individuals who have consciously chosen not to participate in the SIM re-registration exercise or individuals who have completed the first stage of the registration exercise but have not completed the second phase will be prohibited from accessing data services on November 20, 2022, and will be completely deactivated by November’s end.

She urged everyone who hadn’t finished registering to get in touch with the National Communications Authority (NCA) or the appropriate network operator if they needed help.

The Ningo Prampram MP issued a written statement on Saturday saying, “I have noted with fresh concern your ‘unofficial’, misinformed and retrogressive ‘directive’ to MNOs to disable data services on SIMs that have completed stage 1 registration but not stage 2 registration.”

I describe the “directive” as “unofficial” since you have declined to send a letter to the telecommunications companies from either the Ministry of Communications and Digitalization Ghana or the National Communications Authority Ghana.

You expect them to comply with your ignorant decree as a result of a press release or Facebook post you made? Really? Are you reducing the prestigious position of Minister of Communications to that?

The Ministry revealed in October that 28,959,006 SIM cards have already been connected to Ghana Cards.

This figure equals 67.28% of the 42,749,662 SIM cards that were issued nationwide in total.

Additionally, 18,930,664 SIM Cards—or 44.28% of all SIM cards issued—have been fully registered.
