Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Minister for Communications and digitalization, has stated that unregistered SIM cards and those that have not been completely registered will be deactivated on November 30, 2022.
On Wednesday, November 30, 2022, SIM cards that have been linked to Ghana Cards but have not yet completed the second step of registration will be totally disabled.
This was disclosed in a statement released on Friday, November 11 by Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, the minister of communications and digitalization.
She stated that a statement would be made regarding steps to allow people without Ghana Cards to register their SIM cards. This is anticipated to happen after ongoing conversations are finished, she said.
“One key reason why some of those who have linked phone numbers to Ghana Cards have been unable to complete the bio capture of stage two is because they used other people’s cards to link their numbers. This includes vendors who used the cards of others without the knowledge or consent of the card owners.”
“Their inability to complete phase two attests to the robustness of the authentication process designed into the SIM registration architecture. It will flush out all fakes. You cannot use someone else’s Ghana Card to register your SIM.”
According to the Communication Minister, Ursula Owusu, Unregistered SIM cards are set to be deactivated on November 30.
