The Minister of Communication and Digitization Ursula Owusu has disclosed that Ghanaians who fail to re-register their SIM cards will be blocked by the end of December 2021.
According to her, “It has become imperative that we clamp down on cyber criminals hiding behind the anonymity of digital systems to commit antisocial acts, and the Sim re-registration exercise is a key part of that campaign.”
“All SIM cards and SIM-enabled devices would be re-registered from June and end in December. All unregistered sims will be blocked.
“Plans are far advanced to make the National Identification card (Ghana Card) the only national identity card for all identification and business purposes,” she said.
The process of registration can be done on one’s phone and does not require a visit to a Telco outlet. It can easily be done by dialing a dedicated USSD Code.
Furthermore, Ghanaians without the Ghana Card can obtain the cards from the NIA offices for free across the about 260 Districts from July
