The MP for Ningo-Prampram, Sam Nartey George, has identified the imprudence of implementing the September 30 deadline for SIM card re-registration.

Mr. Nartey George explained that the deadline isn’t possible as a result of the implications will be too consequential.

“A deadline in itself will not fix the problem. Deadlines will not produce the Ghana Cards. The National Security is minded by this,” he opined.

It can be recalled that, talking at a press briefing on Sunday July 31, the Communications and Digitalisation Minister, prolonged the deadline for SIM card re-registration from July 31, to September 30, 2022 “reluctantly”.

“Upon consultation with the industry and in view of the challenges enumerated above, I have very reluctantly decided to grant a conditional extension. The programme will be extended to 30th September to end on the anniversary of its commencement,” she introduced.

This was adopted by the blockage of SIM playing cards that had not been re-registered as at September 5 by the National Communication Authority (NCA).

In this regard, Mrs. Owusu-Ekuful on September 7, wrote in a Facebook submit that, “At a subsequent press conference in September, the full scope of the sanctions will be revealed. If you suffer that fate as a result of your own inaction, kindly do not blame your service provider. To be forewarned is to be forearmed”.

Additionally, any SIM that has not but been utterly registered will be unable to use voice and Internet services. Afterward, utilizing unregistered SIMs will be costlier”.
