SIM card re-registration extended to September 30

Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, the sector minister, said this during a news conference in Accra today.

The program will be extended until September 30 in order to mark the anniversary of its start and give us a full year. Sims won’t be able to use services if they haven’t registered by the end of August, she said.

“Using unregistered Sims will also cost extra money. In September, a second press conference will be held to announce the entire scope of the sanctions. Please don’t hold your service provider liable if you experience that fate “She continued.

This extension was granted as a result of various Ghanaians’ complaints regarding the Ministry’s deadline of July 31.

In a previous interview, Mrs. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful stated that the government will not prolong the deadline.

The Minister advised Ghanaians and everyone else who hasn’t registered their SIM cards to take advantage of the current opportunity before it expires on July 31, 2022.

At a National Communications Authority (NCA) forum in Kumasi, she made this statement.

Since the deadline of July 31, 2022, won’t be extended, she used this chance to implores everyone who hasn’t registered their SIM cards to do so.

She added that the exercise will ultimately assist Ghana in creating a reliable and secure SIM Card database.

“Most individuals use their mobile devices to access the internet. We have to make sure they do so securely. This SIM registration activity is one of the steps the government is taking in that direction. We must make it harder for the crooks who hack our systems and swindle us through several online channels to operate. Essentially, it emphasizes the idea that this exercise will make it possible to create a subscriber database with integrity, protecting customers from fraud and scams, she said.

SIM card re-registration initially ran from October 1, 2021, until March 31, 2022. However, because the majority of Ghanaians had not yet received their Ghana cards, the Ministry extended it until July 31, 2022.

The only national identity card that can be used to register a SIM is the Ghana card.
