In the wake of the heightened campaign by some notable persons in the country in registering their displeasure with the inconveniences associated with the ongoing sim re-registration exercise, Director for Legal at the National Communications Authority, NCA has descended heavily on the campaigners.
The group, calling itself Concerned Mobile Network Subscribers in a release called on the telecommunication companies to improve the processes involved in the exercise as subscribers have bitterly complained about how cumbersome and time-consuming nature of the processes.
Failure on the part of these companies to comply with their demands the group said will resort in a number of actions in protest to the exercise.
Among these protest actions is the No Calls Day slated for Tuesday, February 8, 2022 where the group is campaigning for all Ghanaians not to make phone calls in demand for proper and less troublesome registration exercise.
Commenting on this action by the Concerned Network Subscribers, Director for Legal at the NCA, Dr. Poku Adusei says he does not see the sense in the campaign launched by the group.
In a Facebook post sighted by ABC News, the lawyer said he cannot fathom why “a privilege to subscribe to SIMs on your own becomes an absolute property right or which no checks could be imposed.”
He therefore indicated the campaigners should resort to the use of fax, telegram, gong-gong and talking drum going forward since they have decided to boycott phone calls calling the move extremely stupid.
“We pray they resort to the use of fax, telegram, gong-gong, and talking drum henceforth…. Asinine..” parts of the lawyer’s post read.
