How important is Ghana.Gov Website to Ghanaian
This single payments platform is expected to help grow government revenue, redefine how we all engage with the government, and help boost Ghana’s international profile rankings.
“It is estimated that about 10 to 15% of government collections are lost through inefficiencies, theft, and other accounting schemes. Going digital means that we can improve our revenue collections by an estimated Three Billion Cedis (GHS 3 billion)annually.
“Beyond the financial benefits of Ghana.GOV, the platform will also transform how we all connect to Government. There is currently no official Government of Ghana mobile application for the over 9 million smartphone users and the more than 30 million mobile users in Ghana.
The soon-to-be-published Ghana.GOV Citizen App will have important features that will change the way we connect to official information, report issues in our communities, and exchange critical data.”
As well, “This government’s aim of making Ghana a globally competitive market is anchored in the belief that increasing access to public services through technology will have a strong positive impact in the general ease of doing business within Ghana. In the process, this will boost our ranking among other nations and thereby help grow our foreign direct investments.
“Ghana.GOV will offer a simple and single user experience for all government services and will make it easy for everyone to find and pay for government services. The days where you have to make several phone calls or look for a middleman just to get information and help on a government service is coming to an end,” he remarked.
