Communications Minister Ursula Owusu has cautioned reluctant Ghanaians who are refusing to register their sim cards.
Speaking on Asaase radio she said persons who have tagged themselves ‘stubborn academy’ and taking pride in not reigistering their sim cards will soon find it more expensive to use an unregistered sim.
Ursula recently extended the deadline of the sim re-registration exercise from July 31 to September 30 after a number of Ghanaians were unable to access their Ghana cards to register.
She says by the end of August all persons who haven’t registered will notice that their data and airtime will run out easily and they will be limited on the services they enjoy currently.
“If by the end of August they haven’t registered their sims, they will find that it’s more expensive to use an unregistered sim than it is to use a registered one and they will begin to feel the pinch.
Akin to what you were suggesting there will be some services that they can’t access on their devices and their top-ups will disappear much faster than for those who are using registered sims and a few other measures that will be announced in due course. They can keep being stubborn,” she said
