The President of Policy Think Tank Imani Ghana, Franklin Cudjoe has reacts to Sim Card re-registration exercise ongoing in the country which has started from 1st October, 2021.
Franklin Cudjoe has sent some fremsy and funny message to Ghanaians on the Sim Card re-registration exercise ongoing in the country and caused massive stir.
Franklin Cudjoe has stated "when you register for the NIA Card, you are asked to provide your registered phone number. Now you are being asked to use the NIA Card to re-register the same number" which looks like mocking officials who are taking this exercise in the country.
His statement could mean that if government already have those numbers in the system, why should they waste money to let people re-register their Sim Cards again?
Some people who commented under Franklin Cudjoe's post alleged that they have noticed that the old Ghana and the new one have the same numbers and added that "I just saw it in the registration process. We are sick as a nation. Wasting money for nothing".
Some people reacted by saying that the system is already frustrating some of them because they have tried with two different Sims today, but told that the details provided does not match the information on their Ghana card. "If it continues that way some us would have no option than to register new Sims and discard the old ones" someone warned.
"Can you imagine? Thinking deeply through this whole re-registration thing, I am beginning to have a sense of feel that somehow, the allegation of Government sometime ago on the deployment of equipment for monitoring calls is what's about to be rolled out. I am getting convinced that this exercise is the first start as now MoC and NIA that are government agencies have full access to all of our data. I stand to be corrected though" someone told Franklin Cudjoe.
