The National Communications Authority (NCA) says it is not accepting Voter ID Card for the on-going registration of SIM cards across the country.

This follows a post on social media by Member of Parliament for Ningo/Prampram, Sam George who’s also a Member of the Select Commitee on Communications, claiming that the Voters ID card can now be accepted as a document for the registration of SIM cards.

But the NCA in a statement dated November 5, 2022, said “there is currently no medium for registration with Voters ID in the current SIM registration exercise; Ghana Card remains the only ID.”

According to the Authority, they have not issued any such directives to the Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) providers.
