Ursula Owusu, the minister of communications, has sent a barrage of dire warnings to the Ghanaian organization “stubborn Academy.”
Numerous young Ghanaians who have chosen not to re-register their sim cards assert that they are members of the stubborn academy and refuse to do so for reasons best known to them.
These individuals include Sam Nartey George, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo-Prampram, and a huge number of enthusiastic proponents of telecommunications in the West African nation of Ghana. In reaction to their stance, the Minister of Communications has announced that by the end of August, it will be prohibitively expensive for consumers to use a sim card that has not been registered. “If they do not register their sims by the end of August, they will find that using an unregistered sim is more expensive than using a registered sim, and they will begin to feel the pinch.
She asserted that their present access to services will be restricted and that their data and airtime would run out quickly.
Similar to what you stated, they will be unable to access a number of services on their handsets, and their top-ups would expire much more quickly than those who use registered SIM cards. In due time, other steps will also be unveiled. They can continue to be stubborn, she added on Asaase Radio in Accra.
