The Minister of communication and digitalization Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has extended the deadline for SIM cards re-registration exercise again. The exercise should have ended today Sunday, 31st July, 2022.
At a press conference, she said she reluctantly granted the request to prolong the deadline following a number of genuine reasons that have been given by stakeholders including the telecom companies.
“It will be reviewed at the end of this month and any SIM that has not been fully registered by the end of August will be barred from receiving certain services including voice and data service.”
“It will also be more expensive to use unregistered SIM. The full range of punitive measures will be announced at another press briefing in September Do not blame your service provider when you suffer that fate due to your own inaction,” she added.
“I have reluctantly granted it to be extended to 30th September to end on the anniversary of its commencement. That will give us one full year of SIM registration,” she said after stating the reasons at a press conference in Accra on Sunday.
