Ghana’s NCA warns mobile operators over national security threats

Totobi-QuakyiNational Communication Authority Board Chairman, Mr. Kofi Totobi Quakyi, said on Tuesday that no person or groups of persons would be allowed to cause panic or spread fear in the country during and after Friday’s presidential and parliamentary elections.

He told the GNA in an interview that in this regard, in line with existing regulations, mobile network operators would be held liable for any threats to national security and stability emanating from communications generated from unregistered SIM card numbers.

Mr Quakyi reminded mobile operators of their responsibility to ensure that the integrity of mobile phone users can be verified especially at this time.

“Ghanaians have genuine concerns about peace during and after the elections and all must work to safeguard it,” he said.

Mr Quakyi said it would be a terrible idea to allow a handful of political anarchists to use mobile phones and other form of communication technology for malicious purposes.

“Mobile phone operators owe it to themselves to protect the peace, stability and security of Ghana and we expect their fullest co-operation,” he said.
