A National Organiser hopeful of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is warning of consequences should the Minister of Communications dare block any sim card.

Today is the deadline of the sim card reregistration exercise which began 9 months ago.

The sim card registration exercise has been challenged by the inability of some Ghanaians to acquire the Ghana card which is the only required identity card for the registration.

This means that a large number of Ghanaians are on the brink of losing their sim cards because they don’t have the Ghana card to register them.

Thousands of Ghanaians who have the Ghana cards are also struggling to register due to mistakes on their ID cards.

Others who have registered for the card for years and months are still yet to receive the cards. According to the NCA, there are over 2 million cards not picked by their owners.
