MTN has urged customers who have yet to register their SIM cards to do so before the National Communication Authority NCA’s July 31st deadline.
The National Communications Authority has given citizens until July 31st to register their sim cards using the Ghana card as the only identification document.
According to NCE, registering SIM cards with the Ghana card will aid in the prevention of fraudulent activities as well as the protection of sim card data, including transactions. It will also assist in identifying legal sim cards for each network.
Mr. Eli Hini, Chief Executive Officer of MTN Mobile Service, disclosed during a stakeholder meeting in Koforidua that over 6 million of the 17 million customers have yet to register their sim cards.
“As of now the data available indicates that close to 17 million customers have been able to link their cards which means that these customers have their Ghana cards and out of the total number of customers who have their Ghana cards only 10 million customers have gone through the bio- capturing process leaving over 6 million customers who haven’t gone through the bio-capturing process”.
