The system, said to have cost Ghana $2.5 million and designed by indigenous Ghanaian company Vokacom, will also pay tech giant Google $400,000 yearly for embedding the company's online map into the digital addressing system.

The cost of publicity was made known by the Managing Director of Ghana Post, James Kwofie, at a news conference on Friday.

“Publicity like I said, is GHc3.5 million, and there are very expensive firewalls, we can’t say how many, but that also cost a lot of money,” he said.

He added: “In terms of the cost, what is being paid for is the back-end solution, data analytics, hardware i.e. the firewalls and servers, Google license, marketing and publicity as well as technical support, and GHc1.7 million VAT which goes back to the government.
