The vice president, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia was in Adenta to supervise the first phase of the ongoing installation of unique address plates on all 7.5 million houses and properties across the country.
Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The exercise started in the Adenta Municipality in the Greater Accra Region, on Monday, April 12, 2021.
Houses in this municipality are among the first houses to have their digital address plates installed by the government.
In a Facebook post sighted by YEN.com.gh, Dr Bawumia stated that while the installation was ongoing, he had the opportunity to interact with residents who had already received their unique address plates.
The new addressing system which leverages the existing GhanaPost GPS system is made up of a unique house number, street name, digital address, and a QR Code containing the address details of the property. The address plates are being embossed free of charge for all properties.
It will provide a rich and unique database for all properties in Ghana, which, combined with data from the Ghana Card, will inform policy formulation and implementation in the country's digitisation drive.

In other news, the legislator for the Manso Adubia Constituency in the Ashanti Region has threatened to resign should the president fail in fixing bad roads and constructing new ones in his constituency.
Speaking at a radio station in the Ashanti Region, Yaw Frimpong Addo further warned that he will not put his energies into campaigning for the party in the 2024 elections if untarred roads are not fixed by that time.
“If roads remain as they are – untarred – I will resign. I will not even bother contesting for the NPP in 2024,” he expressed.
Meanwhile, the Member of Parliament is confident that the Akufo-Addo administration will do everything possible to achieve all campaign promises as he declares 2021 as the year of roads.
