President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has urged all Ghanaians to take advantage of the National Digital Property Address system in order to help improve the economy and transform their lives.

The president was speaking at the launch of the system in Accra Wednesday.

“With this new system, every property in Ghana will have an address and can be accounted for,” Akufo-Addo said.

He added that the era where landmarks or food joints were used to give directions is over.

“With this new system, the location of the blue kiosk, the ‘waakye’ seller or the ‘koko’ seller will have an address. The Property Addressing System also means that the ‘koko’ seller can now open a bank account.”

“The Digital Address System also means that the ‘koko’ seller will be able to meet the basic requirement to access loan facilities from a bank. Today marks the end of an era and the beginning of a new one. We are launching a solution to our problems because it’s a trustworthy database of addresses,” he added.

In his address, President Akufo-Addo encouraged the utility providers especially the Ghana Water Company Limited to take full advantage of the system since it will help them easily locate customers and boost revenue collection.

The location-based system will provide an effective means of addressing every location to facilitate the implementation of key government policies. The app will generate a unique code for every property or location in Ghana, using the Global Positioning System (GPS) technology. Vokacom, a Ghanaian Information Technology firm, designed the system at a cost of $2.5 million.

The last time Ghana was mapped was in 1974.
