Ursula Owusu-Ekuful Announces Expansion of ECOWAS Roaming Service to Togo, Benin, and Gambia

Ghanaians in Côte d'Ivoire receive calls free, pay local rates calling Ghana, and avoid international roaming charges under the initiative.

Ghana’s Minister of Communications and Digitalisation, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, announced plans to establish bilateral ECOWAS roaming service with Togo, Benin, and the Gambia, following Ghana’s successful implementation of a similar pact with Côte d’Ivoire in 2023.

During a press conference in Accra on February 18, 2024, the Minister highlighted Ghana and Cote D’Ivoire as the first ECOWAS countries to implement the ECOWAS Free Roaming initiative in June 2023.

The initiative allows Ghanaian subscribers visiting Côte d’Ivoire to receive calls without roaming fees and to be charged local rates when making calls to Ghana while in Côte d’Ivoire, and vice versa. Additionally, subscribers traveling between countries will be exempted from international roaming charges.
