The minister of communications, Ursula Owusu Ekuful, who made this known at a press briefing in Accra on Monday, October 14, 2019, said a by the telcos to comply with the directive will attract punitive measures such as the withdrawal of their licences.

She said those who deem the directive as illegal "can challenge it at the proper forum."
