The National Communication Authority in a press release has indicated that it intends to extend the deadline for the ongoing SIM card registration from March 31 if the need be.
The release indicated that, the NCA has no interest in deliberately preventing citizens from registering their SIM cards.
Hitherto, the NCA in an earlier statement says it is exploring other means for the SIM re-registration exercise in order to ease congestion at the customer care centers of Mobile Network Operators. Among other measures to be taken include, the deployment of various ad-hoc registration points at various public areas, including lorry parks, churches, mosques and also, the creation of additional temporary centres at various State Owned Enterprise facilities, including, NCA regional offices, Community ICT Centers established by GIFEC and Post Offices, all in a bid to ease congestion at the customer care centers.
