The communications and digitalization ministry has announced that measures will be applied to those who have deliberately refused to re-register their SIM cards.
According to the Minister, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, possible sanctions will be meted out to those who deliberately refused to participate in the SIM card re-registration.
Speaking to the media on the back of the October deadline granted by the ministry to get all SIM cards in the country registered, Ursula called on Ghanaians to embrace initiatives introduced by the government to protect the country’s digital space.
“There are some who have genuine concerns, and we are working with the NIA to [address them]. But there are others who have the Ghana cards but have not completed the process. So clearly, either they do not intend to, or are unwilling to, so we will have some measures to announce in due course soon,” she said.
She also assured that her ministry is in talks with the National Identification Authority (NIA) to address the genuine concerns of those unable to register their SIMs.
