Speaking at the launch at the Trade Fair Centre in Accra, the former president said the innovation is also to ensure transparency of how political parties are funded in the country.
The electronic payment platform will help the NDC mobilize funds through the collection of dues and also an easy and simple way for non-party members to make contributions to the party’s cause.
The event was well attended by party members and top national executives. Also present were former appointees and regional executives of the NDC.

Mr. Mahama also told the gathering he will bring back the automatic promotion for teachers if the party wins election 2020.
He promised to cancel the teacher licensure exams as well.
“We will bring back the automatic promotion of teachers. And cancel the teacher licensure exams. They say that we introduced the licensure exams; to be clear we never sort to use exams as a means of licensing teachers,” he said.
