Dr. Bawumia is a champion of digitization with equity – UNDP

Vice President Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s remarkable effort in spearheading Ghana’s digitization drive has earned him international plaudits in recent times.

Global development agency of the United Nations, the UNDP, is the latest body to hail Dr. Bawumia for spearheading Ghana’s digital transformation under the Akufo-Addo government.

After its Ghana representative, Dr. Angela Lusigi, held a fruitful deliberation with Dr. Bawumia on the role of digitization in achieving the SDGs, the UNDP tweeted on its official handle to commend the Vice President, describing him as a “Champion of Digitization”.

“The Vice President of Ghana is a champion of digitization with equity to accelerate the inclusive and sustainable development,” the UNDP wrote.

“Great discussion between our Resident Representative Dr. Angela Lusigi and H.E. Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on our work to harness digitization as a catalyst for SDGs for people, prosperity, peace & the planet.”

Dr. Bawumia was recently honoured as Africa’s Digital Revolutionary Leader of the Decade by the Initiators of Change Foundation for his leading role in Ghana’s digitization drive.

On Monday, the University of Nottingham selected Dr. Bawumia as the keynote speaker for its Africa Policy Dialogues on the theme: ‘Digital Transformation in the Public Sector: Lessons and Opportunities from Ghana’.

The government of President Nana Akufo-Addo identified digitization of the Ghanaian economy as a catalyst for turning around the economy and accelerating inclusive development.

Led by Dr. Bawumia and other government stakeholders, the government built its digitization success on the back of the issue of biometric national identification cards, digital addressing system, the digitization of government agencies and services .

He wasn’t voted for to spearhead any digitization. He was brought to power to champion and bring closure to major economic problems as he promised to. What he is doing is to divert the attention of Ghanaians from his incompetence and numerous lies. Where was all the lectures he gave on the economy in 2015? All the findings? Has he thrown all away now?

It is true that the vice president, Bawumia is Championing digital drive in the country. He has done a lot with the paperless system of payment, digital addressing system, Mobil money interoperability and so many more. He is a champion is that field of digital development.
