Mr. Franklin Cudjoe has questioned the Government of Ghana’s order for all sim cards in the country to be reregistered sim cards in the country to be reregistered.
The Government of Ghana has ordered that all sim cards across all networks; MTN, Vodafone, AirtelTigo and Glo be reregistered from 1st October, 2021.
According to the Government through the Ministry of Communications and digitalization, all simcards are to be registered to help remove fake simcards from the system.
However, Mr. Franklin Cudjoe stated that Telecommunication companies to identify and block those fake cards instead of asking millions of Ghanaians who have already registerd their simcards legitimately to reregister.
In a tweet, Mr. Franklin Cudjoe said ;
“If there are fake SIM cards in the system, how is that the doing of those millions of us who registerd earlier legitimately? Shouldn’t the Telcos be asked to identify and block those fake cards?
Exactly how will the National ID card being the sole identity requirement for a RE-REGISTRATION of all SIM cards prevent the infiltration of fakes? Nor can any ID actually do so?
So, if we all yield and re-register, we will not have fake IDs, ever? And if there are fakes in the near future, we all get asked to re-register again? What is this?”
