Former National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for Kumbungu constituency in the Northern Region, Ras Mubarak, has threatened to organise a boycott agaisnt any telecommunication company that will block sim cards that are not re-registered.

According to him, he would not re-registered his own MTN SIM card which he said he has used for more than 23 years, due to the stress involved with the re-registration exercise.

Hon. Mubarak is also of the view that reasons given for the SIM re-registration exercise are not convincing enough.

“I have used my MTN phone number for nearly 24years. I would not Re-register my SIM card. The process is cumbersome, the argument for Re-registration is not compelling. If my network provider blocks my number, not only will I be happy to use the good old landline, I’ll organize a boycott campaign against the service provider,” the former MP said in a facebook post chanced on by

He continued that; “The service providers have much to lose if citizens take charge of how they want to be treated. Who needs a mobile number anyway when there are too many options.”
