Yaw Buabeng Asamoah, Director of Communications for the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and Member of Parliament for the Adentan Constituency has asked the Communication Ministry to do all it can in ensuring that a sim card re-registration exercise does not occur again.

"The re-registration will help a lot but it must be done well this time around; once and for all. Indeed this is not the first time but I will plead that this should be the last time," he said while contributing to a panel discussion on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo'.


Communication Minister, Ursula Owusu Ekuful at a press briefing Monday, said from January 2020, every Ghanaian would have to re-register their sim. This, according to her, is to clean the current registration system which has been characterized by fraud. The exercise is scheduled to end in June 2020.

“It is quite clear that the current sim card registration regime is deficient and fraught with many challenges defeating the purpose of the sim registration,” she said.
