URSULA OWUSU REVEALS PERSONS DELIBERATELY REFUSING TO RE-REGISTER WILL BE DEALT WITH

The minister of communications and digitalization, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, has suggested that those who willfully decided not to take part in the SIM Re-registration initiative will face consequences.

In order to encourage SIM users to re-register their cards, the Ministry set an October deadline that has since passed.

Mrs. Owusu-Ekuful emphasized that her ministry is in touch with the National Identification Authority to address the challenges faced by registrants who have legitimate concerns (NIA).

Speaking outside of the Technology Breakfast Meeting, which was convened to improve public sector chief executives’ understanding of the government’s digitalization initiative, she urged with Ghanaians to support the measures the government is putting in place to safeguard the digital sphere.

“We all need to ensure that we protect the systems that we are putting in place. This is one aspect of it, but the SIM re-registration is also another aspect of it.

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,” the Minister of Communication and Digitalization explained.

The Ministry announced in October that 28,959,006 SIM cards have been linked to Ghana Cards so far.

This number represents 67.28% of the 42,749,662 total SIM cards issued nationally.

Furthermore, 18,930,664 SIM Cards have been fully registered, representing 44.28% of the total SIM cards issued.
