Several Ghanaians affected by the directive to block unregistered SIM cards are incensed by the punitive measure which started on Monday, September 5.
The National Communications Authority (NCA) directive to Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) targets mobile network subscribers in Ghana who have still not re-registered their SIM cards or have done only stage one re-registration.
In a letter signed by the Director-General on September 2, the NCA reminded the MNOs that the re-registration exercise would end on September 30, 2022.

The drama ensued because MTN had reportedly barred his incoming and outgoing calls in line with the NCA directive.
In the clip making the rounds online, the police officer on duty is seen applying force to remove the customer from the office.
While some social media users who saw the footage have shared their experiences, others expressed their displeasure.

Get it right most of the people registered their sim and yet the system flags them unregistered.
We blame the government for everything. We have the right to. But as people of Ghana, we need to embrace change. And stop politicising everything. Change of attitude in us will lead to greater change in developing this country.
The government doesn’t plan. Whoever the project managers are; no sense.
Doesn’t plan? Didn’t you see extensions, anaa?
Register your SIM k3k3, now you are crying.
What if he doesn't have the Ghana card. Is that one too 'kɛkɛ'?
Are you sufficiently informing the wider population that charging e-levy on amounts less than ¢100 is illegal or you're bent on remaining silent to the advantage of your paymasters?
Ghanaians always turn a deaf ear to serious issues. It’s good they have disconnected their SIM cards, next time they’ll learn sense. They always take stuff for granted.
So now errrr, without the Ghana Card, you can't do anything in your own country. Ebi serious matter oooo.
Go and register k3k3 too, ebi problem for Ghanaians?
The national broadcaster's official handle posted this. Nobody be serious for this country.
