Ursula Owusu, Ghana’s minister of communications, has sent the Ghanaian group “stubborn Academy” a lot of dire warnings.
Many young Ghanaians who haven’t re-registered their sim cards say they are part of the “stubborn academy” and won’t do it for reasons only they know.
Sam Nartey George, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo-Prampram, and a very large number of passionate supporters of telecommunications in the West African country of Ghana are among these people. In response to their position, the Minister of Communications has said that by the end of August, it will be too expensive for people to use a sim card that has not been registered. “If they don’t register their sims by the end of August, they will find that using an unregistered sim is more expensive than using a registered sim, and they will start to feel the pinch.
She said that they would have less access to services and that their data and airtime would run out soon.
Like you said, they won’t be able to use some services on their phones, and their top-ups will run out much faster than for people who use registered SIM cards. When the time is right, other steps will also be shown. She added on Accra’s Asaase Radio that they can keep being stubborn.
