Ningo Prampram Samuel Nartey is a member of the Parliament. George has said that the SIM re-registration process will almost certainly be extended and that the government is only bluffing when they say the deadline is July 31, 2022.
Madam Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, who is the Minister of Communications and Digitalization, set the deadline. At first, she pushed it back from March 31 to July 31.
“It will take more time to update the SIM Registration App so that diplomats can sign up for SIM cards. Meanwhile, a Self-Service SIM Registration App is being made to make it easier for Ghanaians living abroad to sign up for SIM cards.
This will work by the middle of April, according to a statement that Madam Owusu-Ekuful sent out to the public on Tuesday, March 22.
Again, she brought it up when she spoke at a forum in Kumasi on July 22. But Sam George of the NDC says this isn’t true.
On Saturday, July 30, when it was Sam George’s turn on TV3’s “Key Points,” he said, “What she said in Kumasi is just talk, it’s not true, and she will extend it.”
He then talked about the problems with the process, like how the system wasn’t working well enough to let a lot of Ghanaians sign up.
He also said that there are long lines at the registration centers, which makes it hard for people to sign up.
“You haven’t solved all of these problems, but you’re going to punish them for your incompetence. Isn’t that unfair? Isn’t that arbitrary?” he quizzed.
