“My sim card was blocked despite the fact that I had registered them”- ex-president Mahama

John Mahama, who has run for president three times, says that the NCA blocked his sim card for two days even though he was registered.

In an interview with TV3, the former president said he was sorry that their SIM cards had been blocked, even though he and his staff had re-registered them.

He stated

The SIM registration, you can even start with new SIM cards and say that ‘No Ghana Card, No SIM card’ if you are purchasing. So we can start at that point while we mop up the others in the system. But if you say by September 30th, everybody must have it or else we will take punitive actions against you…your data will be more expensive, we will block your outgoing calls and so on and so forth, that’s a major problem.

“And I must say I suffered a bit of that experience with the call barring. On one of my phones, my outgoing calls were not going through. My SIM was blocked for two days. They have turned it back on. We went through the process of registering.

“They said it wasn’t registered properly. That’s the kind of information I got, we didn’t complete the exercise and yet they came here and sat with us and did SIM registration here and we called them to my office and so all my staff and everybody went through the registration but most of my staff found their calls blocked,”
