The New African Magazine, Africa’s largest Pan-African publication, has prominently promoted Ghana’s internationally famous digitalization campaign.

In its most recent issue, the London-based magazine wrote extensively about Ghana’s remarkable effort to transform its economy through digitisation, the impact it is having on changing the way Ghanaians live and conduct business, and the significant impact it is having on combating corruption.

The New African Magazine (TNAM) recognises Dr Mahamudu Bawumia (MB) as the primary driver of Ghana’s digitalization push, calling him as a “passionate advocate” for Ghana’s successful digitisation.

The magazine praised Dr. Bawumia for his efforts ahead of an in-depth interview in which he gave considerable insight into Ghana’s digitalization path.

“At the centre of the drive for digital transformation is Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia. With his evangelism for digitisation 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.

In the interview, Dr. Bawumia spoke on the government’s intention to digitize the country as an essential catalyst for the development of Ghana’s economy, particularly in the period of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Dr. Bawumia discussed what has been done thus far, which includes issuing national biometric ID cards (Ghana Card), establishing a national property address system, introducing mobile money interoperability to increase financial inclusion, and digitizing government services such as passports, driver’s licenses, and motor insurance to improve efficiency and reduce corruption, among other things.
