The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has formally out doored the Universal Quick Response (QR) Code and Proxy Pay system for trading on the streets.
To check how effective it is, Dr. Bawumia bought waakye from Aunty Muni waakye joint in Ridge with the digital payment system.
Ghana happens to be the first country to use the Universal QR code in Africa and also one of the best interoperable payment acceptance solutions in the world.
Ghana joins countries like China, Singapore, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand to promote digital payments.
The QR Code and Proxy Pay platforms were launched in March 2020 as part of plans to enhance digital payments.
He added that, it will help us move further into the cashless direction of the digitisation drive because there will be no need for merchants to have point of sales devices, with the QR code platform, all they need is a mobile phone and even a “yam phone” will work.
He, however, entreated everyone to subscribe to the digital payment system as it is accessible to all.
This new way of going digital has received a lot of applause from Ghanaians.
Ebenezer Anokwah said Ghana is working again.
Indeed GHANA is working again. Abroad has come to Ghana. This is what we call vision and the One Man, One okada but the visionless sand hopeless. NDC party .
AlwaysObie Benjamin said he has done well with digitigisation.
You have done well with digitization I respect you for that, it's just that the illiteracy rate is high is only buildings they want to see but going cashless is the way to smooth economic growth.
Yussif Abdul Kabeer said Ghana is on track.
Ghana is on track now, let's protect our gains by giving Nana and Bawumia 4more years.
Alexander Sefah referred to him as the doctor of digitisation.
U have really changed Ghana politics, Doctor digitization. May Allah bless u.
Nat Living had a valid point.
Our leaders always preaching virtue and practicing vice. You talked about cashless society but given us new denominations with higher values. So how do we reconcile the two?
In completely different news, veteran journalist, Abdul Malik Kwaku Baako Jr, has said President Nana Akufo-Addo will win the upcoming presidential elections despite Martin Amidu’s resignation as the special prosecutor.
Amidu’s abdication of his post as Ghana’s foremost anti-corruption prosecutor on Monday, November 13, 2020, gave credence to the erosion of the president’s incorruptibility tag.
The resignation was seen as a major dent on the president’s fortunes in the December 7 presidential poll.
