Don’t Wait Till Last Minute, We Mean Business – NCA Warns Subscribers Yet To Register SIM Cards
The National Communications Authority (NCA) has issued a warning to telecommunication consumers who have not to re-register their SIM cards.
All SIM cards that have not been re-registered by the deadline will be disabled soon, according to the Authority.
Kwame Gyan, the NCA’s Director for Consumer and Corporate Affairs, stated this in an interview with Accra-based Citi News on Wednesday, September 7.
Mr Gyan advised such individuals to follow the present penal procedures in place.
“Hopefully, people will realize that we mean business because now, if we’re banning individuals for not registering and telling you that we’re going to pull you off the network on October 1, you should know that can and will happen,” he added.
He went on to say that the Authority is aware that certain people are purposefully refusing to follow the instruction.
“There were people in line when the minister stated that we had two months to register.” They exited the lines and headed home. They haven’t come back to register.”
Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Minister of Communications and Digitalisation, has already encouraged mobile phone consumers not to blame their service providers for failing to register their SIM cards.
According to her, a slew of punitive actions would be imposed on people who fail to register their SIM cards using the Ghana Card in the near future.
In a Facebook post on Wednesday, September 7, he stated, “The entire nature of the punishments will be announced in a subsequent news conference in September.”
“Please do not blame your service provider if you experience such destiny as a result of your own inaction.” To be warned is to be prepared.”
