As YEN.com.gh reported, Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, stated that the exercise is expected to commence latest by June and the primary document required for that purpose is the National Identification card.
The vice president made the disclosure at the ongoing 5th Ghana CEO summit in Accra.
Dr Bawumia further warned that anyone who fails to take part in the re-registration of the SIM card with the National Identification card risks losing his or her SIM card.
Below are some of the interesting, thought-provoking, and hilarious comments from Ghanaians regarding the development.
Bafa Linus Takponaah stated very soon, Ghanaians will be told to register the oxygen they inhale and asked how SIM card registrations affect the economy.
Joel Tetteh suggested:
New strategy for taxing the innocent Ghanaians who are heavily embedded in taxes..Awww, l cursed the day I voted for this party
Peters PM opined that the vice-president was indirectly performing the role of the minister of communication.
Gideon Kuchando said Dr Bawumia should leave Ghanaians alone and added that the vice-president probably has to be reminded of his role.
Benjamin Afriyie also asked:
Is that part of the economic management team's job?
Whelma Anane wanted to know the solution that different kinds of registrations have brought to Ghanaians in the past.
"Everyday re- register voter ID, national ID and now sim re-register what has all the registration changed," she asked.
In another interesting report, a group of 153 Ghanaians who were trained and certified as medical doctors in foreign countries has been said to still be without postings to respective hospitals for their housemanship.
Speaking to YEN.com.gh, one of the affected young doctors who prefer not to be named stated that they were part of a larger group of 500, out of which 347 received their postings.
The narrator further explained that this has been the third year since they graduated from their respective foreign institutions since 2019 but their letters are still pending.
