Former Central Regional Minister, Kwamena Duncan has hailed the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia for his efforts in digitizing the economy.
The Vice President days ago held a public lecture at the Ashesi University on the theme “TRANSFORMING AN ECONOMY THROUGH DIGITALIZATION- THE GHANA STORY” on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 at the Ashesi University.
He touched on areas like the biometric national ID card, property address system, mobile money interoperability, security and education, health system; outlining what the government has done and is doing to digitally transform these areas among others.
Reacting to the lecture on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo show he said Dr Bawumia has clipped the wings of the opposition NDC making them restless anytime he speaks on the economy.
Responding to critics that the Vice President has shifted from economics to digitalization, he said Dr Bawumia has only given Ghanaians a ‘software version’ of the economy.
” . . they have no clue and do not understand that, in order to build a very bouyant economy, what you have to do is that you make the economic system efficient and to make the economic system efficient; it will not require queues in offices. It will not require 3-day, 1-week, 1-month application for a particular service. It is just by way of your mobile phone, quickly then you do it,” he was quoted by peacefmonline.
