According to the Deputy Ranking Member of the Communications Committee of Parliament Samuel Nartey George and the NDC, they will not approve the budgetary allocation for the Ministry of Communications and Digitalisation.
The Minority in Parliament hinted that if the government continues to ignore concerns over the SIM card re-registration exercise, they will ensure that the Ministry of Communications doesn’t get its budgetary approval for its agencies.
This was after the National Communications Authority on Sunday rolled out punitive measures to be meted out to persons who are yet to register their SIM cards.
Speaking, the Deputy Ranking Member of the Communications Committee of Parliament Samuel Nartey George opted government must work to address issues confronting the rectification and issuance of the Ghana cards.
“Last year when the Minister came [to Parliament], we refused to hear her budget when she had not submitted reports of the NCA,” Mr. George said.
“Let me serve notice that we will move everything within our means to ensure that the Ministry of Communications doesn’t get its budgetary approval for its agencies.”
Meanwhile, Stakeholders have however argued that some persons are unable to re-register their SIM cards over delays in the rectification of information on their Ghana cards.
