Members of Parliament want the Minister for Communications and Digitalization, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful to address the nation about the current internet outrage nationwide.

The situation has been worrying but the National Communications Authority (NCA) earlier alerted the public about multiple undersea cable disruptions that had caused internet disruption.

But Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa told Parliament today that Ursula Owusu-Ekuful must officially brief the nation about the unfortunate situation. 

“The Ghana Telecommunication Chamber and the telecos have all issued statements pleading with their subscribers to bear with them. They say that there have been multiple submarine fibre optic cable disruptions in the high seas, and we do not know the extent of the distractions, and this is a national security issue.

“I want to appeal that the Communications Minister come to tell us what the government is doing to help restore normalcy so that we can have access to the internet and our data services.”

Sarah Adwoa Safo, the MP for Dome-Kwabenya also expressed the need for the government to update the country on measures taken to restore services.

“Members of our constituencies are equally worried as we are, especially with the mobile money operators. So, I will plead with the Majority Leader to schedule the Minister for Communication to come and rightfully and thoroughly address the House on the issues that are at stake so that we can understand it better,” she stated.
