According to a document from the National Communications Authority, SIM card users who have not yet registered their SIM cards will face punitive action starting tomorrow 5th, 2022.
The document further indicated that the measures will include the rerouting of outgoing calls for special messages to be played.
Some numbers will also be blocked for special messages to be played for 48 hours.
Within September, these measures shall not include the blocking of SMS services to give defaulting subscribers the opportunity to initiate registration if they so wish.
“Subscribers who fully register their SIM Cards within the period they have been blocked will only be unblocked by the MNOs after the 48 hours to avoid the MNOs tampering with their systems intermittently,” the document noted.
