The New Africa Magazine, a respected Pan African publication, has hailed Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as “Ghana’s Digital Evangelist.”

In its current issue, the New African Magazine recognizes Vice President Bawumia as the principal driver and a “passionate advocate” of Ghana’s digitization effort, as well as the African continent, in a special story concentrating on the Akufo-Addo government’s impressive digitization campaign.

“At the centre of the drive for digital transformation is Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia. With his evangelism for digitization and hands-on approach to implementation, he has come to symbolise the drive,” wrote the New African Magazine.

“He is directly involved with the process, he is often present at launches and has become a passionate advocate for greater digitalisation Africa-wide,” the Magazine added

“The Fourth Industrial Revolution is a digital revolution based on data and systems,” Dr Bawumia told Kenyan Television Network (KTN News) in September 2022, according to the magazine.

While commending the Akufo-Addo government for spearheading Ghana’s digital revolution, Dr. Bawumia’s report provided much insight into the process, highlighting Ghana’s unique property address system as well as the digital national identity card, which provides Ghanaians with unique national identity numbers that also serve as NHIS, SSNIT, and other national ID numbers.

The report also highlighted how Ghana’s digitisation drive, which has transformed many government services online, is assisting in raising revenue and fighting corruption in a variety of areas, including exposing ghost names on the government payroll and significantly increasing revenue at the passport office, drivers license authority, ports, and so on.
