Notable Ghanaians declare Feb. 8 ‘No Calls Day’ to protest SIM card re-registration

A gathering of remarkable Ghanaian characters who have recognized themselves as Concerned Mobile Network Subscribers have served notice of boycotting the continuous SIM card re-enlistment work out.

As per them, they are prepared to hazard losing their SIM cards; subsequently, have saved Tuesday, February 8, to leave on a cross country fight named ‘No Calls Day’.

They added, “any endeavor to force this [SIM card re-registration] on endorsers or square their lines would add up to an encroachment on their property privileges.”

“On that day, we approach all Ghanaians not to settle on or get telephone decisions as a method of enlisting our restlessness about the bazaar encompassing the SIM card re-enrollment work out,” they reported in a delivery dated January 13, 2022.

The gathering incorporates a previous Kumbungu Member of Parliament, Ras Mubarak; Dean of UG’s School of Law, Prof. Raymond Atuguba; President and Vice President of IMANI-Africa – Franklin Cudjoe and Kofi Bentil; Private Legal Practitioner, Samson Lardi Anyenini, and Investigative Journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni.

“The ‘No Calls Day’ blacklist on eighth February would be the first in a progression of public blacklists to fight the current heartless course of re-enlistment of SIM cards.”

“There is no law in Ghana that requires Ghanaian portable organization supporters of “re-register” their SIM cards,” they contended.

The following are their requests:

The National Communication Authority (NCA) ought to quickly pull out its mandate for portable organization clients to re-register their SIM cards by 31st March 2022.
At the point when the fitting legitimate structure is set up, a re-enlistment exercise should be possible without having supporters spend useful hours and a few days in long lines amidst an attacking Covid-19 pandemic.
There’s naturally a need to dispense with wrongdoing. In any case, the battle against lawbreakers should be inside the law.
We consequently request that the NCA and Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) should think of a superior and creative method of re-enlisting the SIM cards by first correcting existing law; and furthermore to do as such without the current harsh re-enrollment process we are seeing.
They focused on that “assuming the NCA and the MNOs neglect to regard these requests, we will, beginning Tuesday, eighth February, 2022, start the first of a progression of arranged blacklists until the privileges of clients to be treated with nobility, are regarded.”

Different individuals who marked the delivery are Kofi Kakraba Pratt, Dr. Kwesi Owusu, James Afedo, Selorm Branttie, Francis Kofi Korankye-Sakyi, Akyaaba Addai-Sebo, Kwame Mfodwo and Michael Ofori-Akuffo.
