No more extension; all unregistered SIM cards to be blocked October ending

All unregistered SIM cards will be blocked progressively by October ending, the Ministry of Communications has stated.

In a thorough press release, the Ministry emphasized that although the country has succeeded in implementing the re-registration plan, it has not yet reached the intended aim.

Although 14 million people, including Ghanaians and non-Ghanaians, have successfully registered their SIM cards, the bulk have not yet finished.

According to the Ministry, of the 42,749,662 SIM cards distributed nationally, 28,959,006 have been linked to Ghana Cards (Stage 1 registration), or 67.28%.

A total of 18,930,664 SIM cards—or 44.28% of all SIM cards issued—have been fully registered (completed both Stages 1 and 2).

69.64% of all Stage 1 registrations are represented by this.

Counts of Ghana Cards have been used for the registration process a total of 13,720,687 times.

After several extensions caused by increasing pressure on the Communications Ministry and Telecommunications networks, these statistics have been reached.

A year after the procedure began, the Ministry announced in its most recent release that there would be no more extensions and that all partially and unregistered SIM cards would be disabled at the end of the month.

There is no justification for this as these people already have their Ghana Cards, have begun the registration process, and have had plenty of time to properly register their SIM cards, including by using the self-registration app, the first of its type in the world.

The SIM Card registration process may be resisted by others for irrational, philosophical, or political grounds. I just want to remind them that while they may be exercising their freedom to refuse this activity, all actions are nevertheless actions.

The Ministry instructed the populace to view the procedure not as coercion but rather as a requirement under Regulation 1(b) of the Subscriber Identity Module Registration Regulations, 2011. (Li 2006).

According to the National Communications Authority Act, 2008, (Act 769) and the Act, “A network operator or service provider shall not activate a Subscriber Identity Module for a Subscriber unless the Subscriber complies with the directives granted by the Authority under the Act.”

According to the Ministry of Communications, the goal of the exercise is to guarantee a secure digital eco-system for everyone in order to combat fraud, advance group security, and advance a transformational digital agenda.
