The re-registration of mobile SIM cards across the country is expected to commence today, Friday, October 1, 2021.

The exercise will run till 31st March 2022.

It is aimed at riding the country’s cyberspace of fraudsters, monitor and track down persons who use their phones for criminal activities.

The primary document for the re-registration by SIM card users the National Identification card also known as Ghana card.

Meanwhile, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Minority in Parliament has called on the Vice President Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to reconsider the decision for re-registration of SIM by Ghanaians as a move to curb fraud.

“We hold the view that mandatory re-registration of SIM provides no substantial benefit in the fight against electronic money fraud and will face practical challenges such as with inbound travellers who require a sim card without a national ID,” Minority said in a statement.

The Minority said the process for a re-registration would deprive a large segment of the users of Mobile Money services of accessing the service due to no fault of theirs.

“Secondary, a key area of electronic money fraud relates to the attacks on mobile money vendors. Re-registration of SIM does not significantly mitigate these risks,” the statement signed by the Minority Leader in Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu reiterated.
