Over 2,000 aggrieved Ghanaians have registered their willingness to sue the National Communications Authority (NCA) and the Ministry of Communications.

This is due to what they describe as a poorly-organised SIM card re-registration exercise, which has been fraught with anomalies and challenges.

Vice President in control of Strategy at Imani Africa, Selorm Branttie, requested signatures of persons affected by the process who’re additionally serious about being a part of the category motion lawsuit.

He says the suit is already within the works and needs to be prepared in the middle of the week.

“We are still putting the legal language together and classifying the suit to make sure that whatever we state in our claims would be foolproof and would stand the test of the law court.

“The main thing was to get people who have had some kind of irreparable damage by the actions of the NCA and the Ministry of Communications as well as even the language used to justify these actions,” he told JoyNews.

According to Selorm Branttie, the 2,000 mark is phenomenal, contemplating the fact that this has not been a campaign that had big publicity.

“It just tells you the groundswell of anger and the groundswell of inconvenience that this directive has caused.”

Meanwhile, the NCA has shot down recommendations by some Ghanaians to improve the number of registration centres to velocity up the registration process.

“From where I sit, that has not been contemplated; so, in effect, we are not going to open any multi-centres in the month of September because of the SIM re-registration deadline.
