As a result, the NCA has been working assiduously with MNOS and the SIM Card registration application developer to improve the registration process and mitigate the current challenges”, the statement said.

It added that the measure include: “the deployment of various ad-hoc registration points at various public areas including lorry parks, churches, mosques, etc. Announcements will be made in communities wherever such ad-hoc registration points are established.”

The NCA also said additional temporary registration centres will be created at various government facilities including NCA Regional Offices, community ICT centres established by the Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communications (GIFEC) and Post Offices.
