Ghanaians who haven’t registered their Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) cards by the end of July would have their lines deactivated.

This is due to the non-extension of the reregistration exercise according to Communications and Digitalization Minister, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful.

The July 31 deadline is an extension from March 31 where concerns of inaccessibility of the Ghana card – the primary document for the registration – and congestion at SIM registration centres and offices of the Telecommunications companies were raised.

She narrated the arrangement being made for Diplomats and diasporans to get their SIMs registered.

“More time will be required to update the SIM Registration App for the registration of diplomats, while a Self-Service SIM Registration App is also being developed to facilitate registration of SIM cards for Ghanaians resident abroad, she indicated.

The Communications Minister in an address Tuesday, March 22, 2022 said the Registration App will be operational by mid-April.

At a forum in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi, on Friday July 22, 2022, the Communications minister advised persons who haven’t registered to do the needful.

Addressing a forum in Kumasi on Friday July 22, she appealed to all persons who are yet to re-register their cards to do so before the deadline.
