The move is to avoid the inconvenience of joining queues or moving far from your home to buy credits for your meter. In this digital era, there is no need to stress yourself for life must be very simple.

Speaking at the Government Townhall and Results Fair in Kumasi, Bawumia said the mobile app would help Ghana to reap the benefits of digitisation.
