“This national address system that Ghana has implemented is more advanced than the address systems that we have in London or the United States," the Vice President, said.

He continued: “Unfortunately, people don’t even want to think and believe that we can actually do things better than the more advanced countries. People have the mindset that we have to be behind them always but I say no, we can move forward and we can overtake them.”

“You must have the confidence that you can do things that are better than what America or the US can do, and in Ghana, we have been able to do a digital property addressing system that is better than what America or the US has.”

The Vice President's claim that Ghana's digital addressing system is advanced than that of USA and UK, has come under criticism from members of the National Democratic Congress.
