Selorm Branttie, Vice President of Imani Africa has stated without mincing words that the National Communications Authority (NCA) conducted inadequate consultations on the framework set up for the SIM re-registration procedure.

Speaking about the lawsuit filed against the decision to block unregistered SIM cards on Friday, September 9, Mr Branttie said;

“If this system was built robust and secure, today, people who had reregistered would not have had the problems they are having.

“It is very clear and right from the very onset that the system that has been developed and built is flawed and has a lot of problems. This has emanated because of the fact that there has been very poor consultations among the critical stakeholders.”

The NCA and the Minister of Justice and Attorney General have been sued.

Selorm Branttie’s comment comes after the Peoples Project (TPP), led by Kwame Obeng Asare, better known as A Plus has dragged the National Communications Authority and the Attorney General over the government’s decision to take punitive actions against persons who have not registered their sim cards.

The group is requesting that the Supreme Court annul the registration deadline and any accompanying sanctions for failing to register.

It makes the constitutionality of the sanctions an argument. Following the NCA’s declaration that unregistered sim cards will be disabled, the lawsuit was filed.
