Speaking on the need for a nationwide re-registration of sim cards, Mrs Ursula Owusu, minister of communication and digitisation said the initiative is to help curb criminal and fraudulent activities in the country

“SIM registration, when undertaken correctly as we intend to do, will reduce or eliminate fraudulent and criminal activities, help authorities ascertain the accurate number of valid and accurate SIMs on the networks, enable operators to build better demographics of their customer base and help them develop products and services to suit the various groupings” she said.

MTN, Vodafone, AirtelTigo, Glo, Busy, Surfline Subscribers are eligible to register or re-register their SIM Cards before May 2022 as SIM Cards not registered will be permanently blocked.
