Our Government is gradually becoming ‘Kuul’ again.
Yesterday, the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, launched what is called the Ghana Digital Address System.
This will be championed by Ghana Post…
Yes… They’re still operating and no… They don’t have a lot on their plate…
They have all the time in the world to work on this latest digital government project.
Basically, the Digital Address system will act like an online postal address system.
You know, that time you were filling out your admission form and you fabricated your own house address…
Well, you can’t do that anymore. From now, you will be required to provide your digital address.
The digital addressing system is officially known as the GhanaPostGPS.
It is an app, which currently is on the Play Store, iOS and on Windows.
The process is really easy:
After downloading the app, turn on your phone’s location button.
Open the GhanaPostGPS app and click on ‘Your Unique Address’.
A Digital Address (for example, Digital Address: GA-543-0436) will pop up…
The GhanaPostGPS generates a 9 to 11 digit code to a point within a 5-meter square, known as the digital address. It can create approximately 16.1 billion addresses.
Now, this is very important.
Soon the Ghana card is coming out. That card is supposed to give you access to every service the government offers.
Nana Addo has made it clear that your digital address will be required before you’re issued with the Ghana Card.
Application forms for Passport, Drivers license, school admission forms, bank accounts and others will actually require you to provide your digital address.
Just get it now…
