I’m Sorry – NCA Lawyer Apologises for ‘Use Gong-gong to Talk’ Comments on SIM Card Re-registration



Director of Legal Affairs at the National Communications Authority (NCA), Dr. Poku Adusei has apologised for asking persons who don’t want to have their SIM cards re-registered to use “fax, telegram, gong-gong, and talking drums”.

In a Facebook post on Friday, he explained that his aim was to underscore the importance of the SIM card registration, and not to denigrate his audience. He therefore apologised for his initial remarks.

“Folks, good afternoon. I have observed the concerns being expressed by people on my Facebook post yesterday. In my earlier post, I had sought to highlight the importance of the SIM registration exercise and the fact that same is backed by law. However, my subsequent post seems to have given a certain mis-impression. If my post offended anyone, I apologise.

I must state that I did not in any way intend to slight well-meaning Ghanaians, who were communicating their challenges with the SIM registration exercise. I have subsequently, and in recognition of the views and sensibilities of others, deleted the post”, Dr. Adusei wrote.

Dr Adusei had chided some persons who have declared February 8 a no call there in protest to the ongoing sim re-registration exercise.
