Sim Card Re-registration
Meanwhile, the NCA continues to require Ghanaians with a Ghana card to register their SIM with their Ghana card or get disconnected on September 30th.
The Minister for Communication, Ursula Owusu Ekuful has reiterated her earlier warning that the SIM registration exercise would not be extended past September 30.
“If you suffer that fate as a result of your own inaction, kindly do not blame your service provider.” Ursula said.
She concluded with the saying that “to be forewarned is to be forearmed”
