#NoCallsDay today

The group has called on the citizenry not to make or receive phone calls today

Today, Tuesday, 8 February 2022, has been declared no calls day across the country.

A group of Ghanaians, Concerned Mobile Network Subscribers, declared the day a no calls day as a way of registering the displeasure of Ghanaians against government’s ongoing SIM card re-registration.

The group has called on the citizenry not to make or receive phone calls today, as a way of registering their dissatisfaction with the government on the ongoing SIM card re-registration exercise.

The group, which includes former Member of Parliament Ras Mubarak, journalists Samson Lardy Anyenini and Manasseh Azure Awuni, argued in a statement that no law in Ghana requires Ghanaian mobile network subscribers to “re-register” their SIM cards.

In the group’s view, any attempt to impose this on subscribers or block their lines would amount to an infringement of their property rights.

The group is demanding that the National Communications Authority (NCA) withdraw its directive for mobile network customers to re-register their SIM cards by 31 March 2022.

They noted that when the appropriate legal framework is in place, a re-registration exercise can be done without having subscribers spend productive hours and several days in long queues in the midst of a ravaging COVID-19 pandemic.
