Extend the deadline for sim card re-registration to the end of the year- Policy think tank

A research and public policy think tank, CUTS International, Accra has admonished the Ministry of Communications and Digitalisation to extend the mobile SIM Card registration deadline to the end of the year.

The think tank says the majority of Ghanaians have logistical challenges in obtaining NIA cards and using the same to register their SIM.

Addressing a press conference on Monday, July 25, 2022, the West African Regional Director for CUTS International, Mr. Appiah Kusi Adomako said “whilst we understand the rationale behind the mandatory SIM card registration and the implication of unregistered SIM cards on crime prevention and detection as well on government domestic revenue mobilisation measures, extending the deadline to the end of the year would ensure that those who have not registered would be able to do so.”

“Again, we are also not unmindful that not everyone would get registered should it be extended to the end of the year but those who would take advantage of the extension to register would outnumber those who would not register”.

“As a consumer protection organization, we have received numerous concerns from consumers about the difficulty they go through in acquiring the Ghana Card to enable them to register their SIM cards.”
