Dr. Poku Adusei, Director of Legal Affairs for the NCA, stated that it is incorrect to restrict the SIM operations of such customers because they are exempt from the recently announced punitive measures.

Numerous complaints have been made regarding the blocking of SIM cards that have undergone a complete re-registration as a result of punishments imposed for disobeying a government order.

Registration centers are in a state of turmoil as a result.

"The order stated that if you haven't gone through the two-stage registration process, you could face consequences, but it's likely that the application of the sanctions might go too far.

Since the networks are in the supervision of independent operators, Dr. Adusei said, "In that situation, it would not be our direction that there should be that overreach."

The matter has already been taken against the NCA in front of the Supreme Court.

The deadline and the related punitive measures are among the reliefs it requests from the Supreme Court. 

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has requested that the NCA and the Minister of Communications be called to order by the Parliament.

"It is undeniable that neither the SIM Registration Regulations, 2011 (L.I 2006) nor the National Identity Register Regulations, 2012 (L.I 2111) nor any other law in effect in the nation support the re-registration of mobile SIM cards policy or the accompanying sanctions that are being imposed on Ghanaians by the Ministry of Communications and the National Communications Authority.

Part of the statement, which was signed by General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia, said, "The decision by these businesses to restrict the SIM Cards of Ghanaians, including those who have already re-registered their SIM Cards, is therefore unlawful, irresponsible, and reprehensible to say the least."
