SIM card registration: Extend deadline to 2023 – Momo agents

Must Read

The Mobile Money Agents Association of Ghana (MMAAG) has pleaded with the Ministry of Communications and Digitalisation to extend the deadline date for the ongoing SIM card re-registration exercise.

According to the group, millions of the Ghanaian populace are facing several challenges in registering and acquiring their Ghana Identification cards, hence want the deadline  extended.

“It’s very clear that millions of our customers and our members are willing to update their credentials with the common denominator, unfortunately, access to the National Identification Authority’s service is really frustrating and difficult.

“We appeal that with realism and having considered the above inconveniences and challenges, the Government should extend the deadline to January 2023,” MMAAG said in a statement available to and signed by its General Secretary of MMAAG, Evans Otumfuo.

The group also pledged their support to the government in the exercise through various touch points across the country to ensure significant Ghanaians update their SIMs.

MMAAG believes their plea when taken into consideration, the time frame “should enable the NIA to decentralise the exercise for the smooth reach of Ghanaians.

According to the statement, the Mobile Money business is already struggling with the impact of E-levy, and the deactivation of unregistered SIM cards after July 31, 2022, will only not affect their business but the entire Ghanaian populace too.

“As business people in the industry, it will be very detrimental to our businesses and the industry, in general, should government pursue the 31st July 2022 deadline since many Ghanaians running into several million are yet to be registered and issued the Ghanaian Identification card.

“The business is already struggling with the impact of e-levy, and this blockage will only not affect us but the Ghanaian populace,” MMAAG highlighted.
