SIM re-registration: MoMo agents raise concerns about date for new deadline

Social Share

The Mobile Money Agents Association has expressed over the new date for the extension SIM cards re-registration announced by the government.

According to them, the time is not enough to guarantee that all Ghanaians would re-register their SIM cards considering the challenge associated with the access to their Ghana cards.

The Secretary of the Mobile Money Agents Association, Evans Otumfuor, in an interview, said until problems facing the National Identification Authority are dealt with, the extension would have little impact.

“Looking at the exigencies that government wants us to regularise our credentials with the Ghana Card, we were thinking that at least, within a space of six months, it should be enough for us to get quite a good number of people.”

The government had initially set July 31 as the deadline for all persons to re-register their SIM cards with their Ghana Cards.

Persons who had failed to comply with the directive would have had their SIM cards deactivated.

The regulations are to help law enforcement agencies to identify SIM card owners, track criminals who use phones for illegal activities, curb phone theft, hate text messaging, mobile fraud activities, and SIM Box fraud.

Statistics from the National Communication Authority (NCA) show that as of Thursday, July 21, 2022, 16,969,034 individuals had registered for the Ghana Card, with about 16,535,623 cards printed, while 15,395,607 had linked their Ghana Card to their SIM cards.

To boost the registration process, the government has put in place a self-service registration application, which will be made available on both Android and IOS platforms this week.
