Speaking to a gathering in Kwahu Mpraeso on Saturday, March 30, 2024, following a special Easter health walk, Bawumia reiterated this pledge, emphasizing the importance of technology in shaping the future and the necessity to capitalize on its advantages.

Highlighting the pivotal role of the youth in driving technological advancement, he stated that "The future is technology, and the youth of this country are important to drive what we want to do in technological advancement.

"That is why I have said we will train about 1 million young Ghanaians in coding and software applications under my presidency."

He has also promised to implement bold decisions if elected, including a new tax system.


"A vote for me is a vote for bold solutions. And a vote for my opponent is a vote for old solutions. I am coming with new ideas and bold solutions to move our country forward. As I have said, I am coming with a new tax system which will bring a flat tax rate and also grant tax amnesty to businesses and individuals," he stated.
