A New Directive On Punitive Actions For Unregistered Sim Cards.
In order to protect consumers and eliminate the distribution of fraudulent SIM cards, a new directive has been established to protect both consumers and businesses from unregistered SIM cards.
Recently, the Ghana government passed this new directive on punitive actions for unregistered SIM cards, which will go into effect on September 5th of this year and apply to all businesses and individuals in Ghana.
The National Communications Authority’s document states that one of the initial disciplinary actions will involve rerouting outgoing calls so that special messages can be broadcast.
Additionally, some numbers will be restricted from receiving special messages for 48 hours.

The Directive on Punitive Actions for Unregistered SIM cards is issued to all members of the Resistance.
