The National Communications Authority (NCA) has granted all mobile network operators (MNOs) the responsibility to enable users to monitor the number of SIM cards registered to their Ghana card as of May 1, 2023.
Since the National Communications Authority, NCA ordered the compulsory nationwide reregistration of all sim cards, there have been numerous complaints of people’s Ghana Cards being unknowingly linked to phone numbers that they are not the owners of.
As a result, the National Communications Authority, NCA, has taken action to give Sim Card users the ability to discover the phone numbers linked to their sim cards and maybe unlink them if any numbers have been forcibly linked to their Ghana Cards.
What Is Ghana Card?
Ghana’s National Identification Authority (NIA) issues the Ghana Card, a national identity card, to Ghanaians, including residents and non-residents and legally and indefinitely residing foreign citizens. It documents the holder’s citizenship, identity, and residence. Your name, birth date, and other personal information are included on the Ghana Card.
