Bawumia – will enhance transparency

Bawumia - Rapid News GH

The Akufo-Addo administration’s digitalization plan, according to vice president Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, would increase openness in all areas of the economy.

He claimed that as services become more automated, less human interaction will be involved, which he believes will lead to greater openness.

When Dr. Bawumia represented President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the 2023 Development Conference hosted by the Church of Pentecost on Wednesday, July 26, he made these remarks.

He outlined some actions the government has taken to address Ghanaians’ economic problems.

He emphasized that the “behavior of the people determines the transformation of a nation” during the event. We have concentrated as a government on developing systems (via digitization) that will lessen the impact of the human element and increase transparency because of this.

“We are putting systems in place (like unique identification from birth, integration of databases of Bank Accounts, SIM cards, Passport, DVLA, SSNIT, Births and Deaths, Ghana Health Service, and the National Identification Authority), along with the digitalization of public services at various institutions.”

Former President John Agyekum Kufuor, who was present at the ceremony, emphasized the importance of people’s power in any nation’s governance.

Mr. Kufuor emphasized that the constitution gives the people—and Ghanaians in particular—the right to exercise their sovereignty, which is why accountability and openness are essential components of good governance.

‘Moral Vision and National Development’ served as the topic for the conference.

Major players in national development were present, with Vice President Dr. Bawumia leading the delegation of dignitaries.

Mr. Kufuor, who presided over the Republic of Ghana from January 7, 2001, until January 6, 2009, emphasized the significance of the governed being held accountable by the government.

He emphasized that “Ghana’s national constitution actually vests sovereignty in the people as a whole.”

In order for governors to always be aware that they hold authority in the trust of the people, the actual owners of power, accountability, and openness are necessary prerequisites for governance.
