According to MTN Ghana administrators, every customer is mandatory to register their Sims before the due date which was 30st June,2020.
This information was announced across the nation with public education. This is actually a nation wide exercise which is authorized by the Government of Ghana to all Network Operators (MTN Gh, Airtel-Tigo, Vodafone Gh And Glo Gh) respectively.
Thos Sim card registration exercise was initiated since September 2021 and was commenced on January 2022 to 30th June, 2022.
Many Ghanaians find it difficult to register for the lack of understanding, Time factor and network operation failure. Due to this at the end of the Month, June 2022, it came to light that the number of registration turn over was 60% . Which stated clearly that 40% of the customers wasn’t able to do the registration as the due date. So there was the need to extend the date with additional one-month.
So there was a Grace period of one solid month which is from July 1st to 31st July, 2022. Now this is the case, aside the additional month given to the customers to make their Sim Card registered yet the turn over as at 30th July isn’t encouraging enough.
Beside, there has been a long qeue at the various registration centers which if we evaluate, the probability of these Network Operators re-extending the registration exercise.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES UNDER WHICH NETWORK OPERATORS MAY RECONSIDER IN OTHER TO EXTEND THIS EXERCISE
The Network Operators in Ghana especially MTN has a link with other Loan institutions, Banking services and has anonymously increase the number of patronage (customers) of service as to the banking institutions.
And for the fact that loans has been already disbursed to about 60% of regular customers will cause a high risk to the Network provider (MTN).
Yes, so the probability of these Sim card being seized or block at the moment is very low.
Beside, many customers have cash in their wallet’s and also have their bank accounts linked to their mobile money. So in conclusion, it’s obvious that this period allowed for the registration exercise will have to be re-extend again to have all users registered and stay secured.
