The Ministry of Communication has disclosed that the re-registration of sim cards will commence from today, October 1, 2021.
According to the Ministry, this exercise will last till March 2022 and it is intended to curb the mobile phone fraud menace.
The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia in commenting on the development months earlier said, “we all have to do that otherwise we’ll lose that SIM card.
