The outspoken MP bashed the inconvenience of the subscribers taking long queues to have their sims registered, describing the exercise as flawed.
Incoming NDC will embark on another SIM Card registration – Sam Goerge
MP for Ningo-Prampram Sam Nartey George has aroused conversation that the incoming NDC administration will undertake another SIM registration exercise.
Addressing the media, Sam George clarified the intended registration will not require subscribers to show up physically at the offices of the Telcos.
“…We stand here on behalf of the people of Ghana to demand that the Minister of Communications takes the rightful steps to ensure a clean register without disenfranchising Ghanaians many of whom the money for the feeding of their families is stuck on their SIM Cards. If that is all you needed to buy medication for a sick family member, you’ll realize the pain that Ursula has put people through.
“Again, let us be clear that it is not true they are using this to fight crime. Don’t forget that the Ghana Card fundamentally is flawed and that’s why we have served notice that the next NDC government will do a proper re-registration which will not involve you having to go and cue in telecom offices but we’ll do a proper re-registration of SIM Cards.”
The NCA and telecommunications network set May 30, to cut off all subscribers who did not have their SIM cards registered.
