17 Million Mobile Phone Subscribers Register SIM Cards - NCA
Data from the National Communications Authority (NCA) indicate that about 17 million mobile phone subscribers have so far registered their SIM cards since registration begun in September 2021. This is less than half of the about 42 million subscribers. According to Director of Consumer and Corporate Affairs, Nana Dufie Badu, her
outfit does not expects all the 42 million subscribers to register their SIM cards since some of them are cards used by fraudsters. It is difficult to say we are expecting 42 million SIM cards to be totally registered by the end of the registration process. These 42 million active SIM cards we see on our network also include SIMs being
used by the fraudsters. So, we do not also expect to see those SIMs registered. It is also possible for people who use multi-SIMs to decide not to register a whole number of SIMs given that every individual has a quota of 10 SIMs to register, she explained. She further said we do not expect to see all 42 million SIMs being registered by
September [30th 2022]. With about 14 days more to the end of SIM Card registration, Nana Dufie Badu, entreated subscribers to get registered before their SIM cards are blocked.
