The Accra High Court has dismissed an application by nine people challenging the legality of the registration of SIM cards with the Ghana Card as the source document.
The applicants invoked the supervisory jurisdiction of the High Court seeking the court to quash the decision by the Minister of Communications to make the Ghana Card the only registration document.
The applicants also wanted the court to quash a directive by the Ministry for everyone to register within a certain period or risk their SIM cards being blocked.
However in a judgment, the court, presided over by Justice Charles Ekow Baiden, held that the applicants failed to prove that the National Communications Authority acted arbitrarily or in excess of its powers.
