Ghana Hosts Nine ECOWAS Countries On Mobile Number Portability

A workshop on Mobile Number Portability (MNP) and quality mobile service has opened in Accra.

The five day workshop, which started yesterday, is organised by the National Communications Authority (NCA) Ghana, in collaboration with the West Africa Telecommunications Regulations Assembly (WATRA). It is intended to provide opportunities for the delegates to benefit from experience and knowledge of NCA in the area of MNP.


Ghana, Togo, Dakar, Niger, Mali, Burkina Faso, Benin, Guinea, Liberia and Cote d’Ivoire, and representatives of telecoms are attending the workshop.


The Minister for Communications, Dr. Edward Omane-Boamah, at the opening ceremony said Ghana's success in the implementation of the MNP policy could be largely attributed to the initial advanced preparations and planning as well as the effective collaboration amongst all the key stakeholders within the sector.


According to him, Ghana is more than ready to share her experience with the other country representatives on the MNP, adding that the workshop would include discussions on the phases involved in the roll out of the regulators.


Dr Omane-Boamah said the Mobile Network Operators would also provide insight into the management of the MNP service and decipher some challenges that they have had to endure. "The quality of service, which is dear to consumers’ heart will also be touched on," the Minister noted.
