The Vice President of the Republic, Dr. Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia has assured that all houses will receive their Ghana Post address plates by end of the year 2020.
According to him there is a backlog of about 1.5 million GPS addresses that is yet to be uniquely identified but he is optimistic the process should be complete by the end of 2020.
Dr. Bawumia made this announcement while speaking at a ceremony held at Alisa Hotel to acclaim the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo as flagbearer.
The National Digital Property Addressing System (NDPAS) was initiated in October 2017 by President Akufo-Addo to serve as means of recognizing every location and property to facilitate government’s digitisation agenda.
After years of registering houses and other structures, Dr. Bawumia says each house will receive a unique digital address and tagging plate by the end of the year.
“By the end of this year, most adults will have the national ID cards, and all houses by the end of this year are being provided unique Ghana post-digital addresses and we will start putting the plates on each house. So far, we have finished uniquely identifying about 2.5 million houses and we have 1.5 million to go and we will complete that before the end of the year and then the posting of the addresses on the houses will start,” he noted.
