Member of Parliament’s Select Committee on Communications says Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) risk breaching their contractual obligations with their customers if they go ahead to cut off some customers after March 31.
According to Samuel George Nartey the contracts the MNOs signed with their customers has no clause for disconnection of customers for failure to register their SIM cards.
The Ursula Owusu-Erkuful led Ministry of Communications has directed the MNOs to disconnect all mobile phone users who fail to re-register their SIM cards with their Ghana cards by 31 March 2022.
The directive is the second reregistration directive in a spate of two years and kicked off in October 2021.
Communications Ministry is confident six months is ample time for the MNOs to register all their customers despite the long queues that have been camped at the offices of the MNOs and their agents.
Thousands of Ghanaians have also been queuing at various offices designated for registration for Ghana cards with a high ranking official of the National Identification Authority asking for an extension of the March 2022.
In an interview with Sena Nombo on Radio Gold, Ningo Prampram MP Samuel George Nartey however says the MNOs cannot hide behind the Ministry’s directive to breach their contracts with their customers.
He has threatened to lead a class action suit against the MNOs if they go ahead to disconnect their customers on March 31 2022.
