Minister of Information who doubles as the member of Parliament for Ofoase-Ayirebi has said that Ghana will generate more revenue from digitalization than oil and gas.
He explained that oil and gas are finite resources that will finish with time as they get exploited noting that Cocoa and other cash crops have been major pillars in terms of foreign exchange and business in the country’s economy but if there is no rain, no fertilizer and if farmers decide not to farm, there will be a different story.
”Oil and gas are finite resources, and after exploitation, for years they will all get finished. Cocoa and other cash crops have been major pillars in terms of foreign exchange and business in our economy but if there is no rain, no fertilizer and if farmers decide not to farm, there will be a different story altogether but with the digitalization, it is going to open new economic avenues for what we are already doing”, he said.
Elaborating more on the digitalization agenda on Kumasi-based Hello FM, Mr. Oppong Nkrumah opined that the digitalization agenda will go along way to help check corruption in government institutions.
”The world has accepted it’s digitalization and we also have to come to terms with it. Let’s embrace it because it will also help check corruption in government institutions and also speed up work”, the MP said.
Meanwhile Mr. Addai Odike has thrown his weight behind Dr. Bawumia’s digitalization agenda and has asked Ghanaians to embrace it too.
