According to the Minister of Communications and Digitalisation, Hon. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Ghanaians will soon have the ability to register their SIM cards from the comfort of their homes.
She made this known in a recent submission she made to address the growing concerns of Ghanaians towards the SIM re-registration exercise that is going on in Ghana.
It could be recalled that the Ministry directed Ghanaians to re-register their SIM cards or risk losing them forever with July 31 being the deadline.
As the deadline approached, many Ghanaians were unable to register their SIM cards and this saw long queues at registration centers.
Upon deliberations with stakeholders, the minister has indicated that it is not only that they have extended the deadline, but the elf-Service SIM Registration App will also be launched to make things run smoothly.
The post that she made reads;
“Self-Service SIM Registration App
The Self-Service SIM Registration App will be ready for commercial launch on Tuesday 2nd August as Virtual Private Network (VPN) connectivity and Application Programming Interface (API) integration with all MNOs was only completed this weekend due to unavoidable circumstances.
Adequate time will also be required for publicity and public education on the use of the Self-Service SIM Registration App.
The SIM Registration App will be available for download on both android and IOS this week barring any unforeseen circumstances. Each registration via the app will be subject to a 5 cedi surcharge.”
