She iterated that all unregistered SIM cards would be deactivated by the end of July this year, and advised mobile phone users yet to register their SIM cards to do so to meet the deadline.

Mrs Owusu-Ekuful gave the caution during the climax of the Ahafo Regional celebration of Girls-in-ICT Initiative held at Acherensua in the Asutifi South District on the theme “Access and safety”.

The Girls-in-ICT initiative, one of the flagship programmes of the Ministry of Communication and Digitalisation (MoCD) was in line with the International Girls-in-ICT Day, an initiative introduced in 2012 and backed by all International Communications Unions (ITU) Member States.

It aimed at encouraging and empowering girls and young women to consider studies and careers in ICT in the growing fields of ICTs, enabled both girls and technology companies to reap the benefits of greater female participation in the ICT sector.

Under the initiative, 1,000 girls from selected basic schools in the Region had the opportunity to undergo a one-week intensive training in ICT in basic computing including programming, coding, gaming, scratch typing and mentorship programme.

Mrs Owusu-Ekuful said mobile phone subscribers and users in the country had been provided enough time and opportunity to register their SIM cards saying, “there is no way we are going to extend the deadline again”.

She explained the SIM card registration was essential because the exercise would greatly help the country in its efforts to prevent online and cybercrimes which had become more sophisticated. (GNA)
