Dr. Prince Kofi Kludjeson, President of Celltel Networks Limited, has highlighted the critical role technology plays in Ghana’s development. Speaking at the Tema Industrial News Hub Boardroom Dialogue, Dr. Kludjeson stated that the comprehensive adoption of technology in Ghana’s development architecture is crucial to the country’s growth.

To reap the benefits of technological innovation and digitization, Dr. Kludjeson emphasized the need for adequate internet connectivity in Ghana. He observed that data connectivity in the country was low in comparison to voice connectivity, making it difficult for people to rely on it for education, health, and other related issues.

According to Dr. Kludjeson, technology is critical to citizen empowerment, and policymakers and members of parliament must advocate for its use to increase the country’s wealth. He believes that with adequate technical investment in various sectors, Ghana can significantly improve and flourish.

Dr. Kludjeson also pointed out the challenges faced by teachers who are trying to introduce and teach Information, Communication, and Technology (ICT) to youngsters in the absence of computers. He noted that while education is expanding, access to the internet is still limited, and school policies prohibiting children from bringing phones to school must be reviewed.

To stimulate digitalization and the use of technology, Dr. Kludjeson suggested that every school-aged child in Ghana should have access to computers and phones with sufficient internet connectivity. He argued that the notion that children would use such devices to view and engage in immoral actions is unfounded, as there are programs that can be used to block such sites and protect minors.

Dr. Kludjeson emphasized the need for Ghana to adopt technological innovations and digitization to achieve economic growth and development. He urged policymakers to prioritize investments in technology and work towards improving internet connectivity in the country.

For the most part, Ghana’s development is hinged on technological advancements and investments. The country needs to embrace digitalization and ensure adequate internet connectivity to reap the benefits of technology. Dr. Kludjeson’s call to policymakers to prioritize technology investments is timely and essential for Ghana’s growth and development.
