Ningo-Prampram MP, Sam George has opposed the registration of SIM cards with only the Ghana Card
According to him, it is not legally right for the government to demand or require only the Ghana Card for the registration of SIM Cards.
On the back of the nationwide re-registration of SIM Cards which took off on October 1, Sam George said the law permits other statutory cards or identification documents to be used for the re-registration or registration of SIM Cards.
Speaking at a press conference today, Sam George referenced his opposition to the plan to the LI.
“The LI makes the Ghana Card mandatory but not the sole card for the registration of SIM Cards and this is a very critical point. The ministry says the Ghana Card is the only card to be used for the registration of SIM cards, which is not correct.”
He spoke at length in the video below:

Sim Re-Registration: How To Register Your SIM Cards With Ghana Card Using Your Mobile Phone
On Friday, October 1 2021, every new and existing SIM Card will need to be re-registered using the Ghana Card as announced and widely publicized by the National Communications Authority (NCA).
This is a move by the authority to have a centralized database of subscribers and to combat SIM boxing and other related infractions.
On the back of that, every subscriber will either need to visit a vendor to have his or her SIM cards re-registered using the Ghana Card or can get through the process by using the mobile phone.
For your information, each subscriber is allowed to register or re-register 10 SIM cards with the same Ghana Card.

“The Ghana Card was created to introduce 666, very soon you can’t do anything without it” – Ghanaian writer claims
A Ghanaian writer has dropped a new conspiracy theory about the introduction of the Ghana Card as a universal identifier to drive Ghana’s digitization agenda as propounded by Vice President Bawumia.
According to this well-read writer, the card was created to usher in the Biblical period, 666 where citizens will face tough inconvenience if they do not have and show their Ghana Cards.
According to him, without the Ghana Card, very soon, Ghanaians or even non-Ghanaians residing in the country will face severe impediments and it will be likened to the prophesied 666 period where people will need to provide special identification before they can go about their daily activities.
Tweeting at @GhanaSocialU, this writer intimated that the re-registration of SIM cards with the Ghana Card is one of the many inconveniences that will be introduced to Ghanaians…in the end, many will not be able to communicate using their mobile phones, buying and selling will be curtailed and the citizens will be remote-controlled which tie into the overall 666 agenda.
While many treated this claim with disdain and apparent disgust, the writer was firm in his thought and belief that Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia is championing the digitization agenda not to push for the betterment of society but to control the lives of all and sundry residing in Ghana.
“You guys don’t understand what’s going on right?! The Ghana Card becomes like chip u use to access everything n without you can’t do anything! All this to digitize us and bring us to the 666 ! Without the card u won’t be able to trade(buy n sell) as your Momo is connected to it :” he wrote.
