Communications and Digitalization minister, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has said it would be costly to use an unregistered SIM after the deadline of the registration.
She has reiterated the exercise will not be extended after the September 30 deadline.
In a post authored by the minister, she says the implementation of the NCA’s directive is prudent and they are looking to spell out the scope of the full sanctions this month.
Read her full post below:
I informed the media during my most recent meeting that the SIM registration exercise would not be extended past September 30.
After evaluation at the end of August, it has been determined that starting the disciplinary steps outlined in the NCA press release is prudent.
Additionally, any SIM that has not yet been completely registered will be unable to use voice and Internet services. Afterward, using unregistered SIMs will be more expensive.
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.
