The Minister for Communication and Digitization, Hon. Ursula Owusu Ekuful has disclosed that over 12 million Ghanaians have linked their Ghana card to their sim card.
According to Ursula Owusu Ekuful, the figure is a clear indication that the majority of Ghanaians have understood the Sim Card re-registration exercise.
Speaking at a Consumer Forum on Telecommunications Service organised by the NCA in Kumasi, she reiterated that the deadline for the SIM Card re-registration exercise which is 31st July 2022 will not be extended.
She urged those who have not participated in the exercise to do so.
“The sim card re-registration exercise is one of the consumer Centred initiatives which has the key objective for network consumers to use their network with no fear of cyber attacks,” she said.
Ursula Owusu Ekuful emphasized that the decision taken by the government is for the benefit of the citizens.
She said the exercise will make it difficult for fugitives to defraud consumers on telecommunications services.
She added that the exercise will increase the use of digital technology.
The Minister for Communication and Digitization, however, urged the consumers to complain and seek redress for challenges they encounter on the network they use.
“The NCA doesn’t subscribe to the ‘fa ma Nyame’ in this sector,” Ursula Owusu Ekuful affirmed.
