Agents of Electronic Money Issuers (EMI) whose accounts have not been linked to their Ghana Cards are at risk of deactivation, the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunication has announced.
These agents have up until January 31, 2024, to have them linked or have their accounts suspended, it asserted in a press statement.
“We would like to use this press release as a last call-to-action to the agents, by urging them to regularize their operations through the linking of their accounts with their Ghana Card or TIN if they haven’t already. Failure to do so before the end of Wednesday, January 31, 2023, will lead to the blocking of their accounts.”
It indicated that all agent accounts without Ghana Cards will be blocked on February 1.
The release comes after multiple prompts to agents, the Telecos said.
“In the unfortunate circumstances where an agent’s account is suspended on February 1, 2024, they may visit any of the operator outlets with their Ghana Card or TIN to complete the process.
“We understand the importance of mobile financial services in facilitating financial inclusion and economic growth in the country. We therefore remain committed to taking the needed steps to deliver convenient, secure, and accessible financial services to all Ghanaians.”
