Ghana Post has started the embossment of 4,000 state institutions and other popular buildings nationwide with their digital addresses.

In Accra, facilities that have been embossed with their digital addresses include the ministries, the headquarters of the Ghana Police Service and the Ghana National Fire Service, Ghana Health Service, post offices, and the Accra Sports Stadium.

Other places are the National Theatre, the Ghana Tourism Authority head office, and the Environmental Protection Agency.

The acting Managing Director of the Ghana Post Company Limited, Mr James Kwofie, said the Ministry of Communications will soon include other properties, including residential ones.

“The physical tagging is to increase awareness and visibility. It is not just enough to say people have digital addresses, but we are going a step further to put it on structures for people to identify them. The expectation is that people can use their address to indicate where they live or work.

“We want to make it easy for people to go anywhere - from tourist sites, churches, pubs, homes and government offices without asking anyone for direction. All you need is the digital address to get there and for us at Ghana Post, it will make our deliveries easier and faster and cut down the number of undelivered parcels due to addressing challenges we experienced in the past,” he said.

Mr Kwofie further asked the public not to only download the app but also register their addresses for home and workplaces.

He explained that very soon, banks and institutions such as the National Identification Authority would need the addresses of individuals for verification to enable them to access essential services.
