The flagbearer for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has stated that he is committed to solving Ghana’s challenges.

He made this statement on Wednesday, February 7, 2024, while presenting his vision for Ghana at the University of Professional Studies (UPSA) in Accra.

The vice president said his biggest motivation was to find solutions to improve living standards.

“My biggest motivation is about finding solutions: solutions that improve lives, solutions that make public services efficient and accessible, solutions that make society progress, solutions that protect the public purse, and solutions that make our businesses competitive. I derive my greatest satisfaction from solving problems,” he stated.

The NPP’s flagbearer believes Ghana’s problems, especially the economy, could be resolved through digitalisation.

The vice president reiterated that all aspects of the economy could be improved via digitalisation, hence his decision to digitalise Ghana to meet the growing demand for Artificial intelligence (AI).

“My approach was to help formalise the economy through digitalisation, as stated in our 2016 manifesto. This is why my office has had oversight responsibility for many of the government’s digitalisation projects. We can only build a vibrant modern nation if we have strong systems and institutions that work. Very soon, Artificial Intelligence (AI) will transform the world. How are we preparing Ghana for this new phenomenon? I will now come to how we are using digitalisation to transform the economy and prepare our society to be competitive as Africa is busily becoming the largest single market in the world with its 1.4 billion people.”

Dr Bawumia added that tax systems would be fully automated to simplify payments and facilitate efficient revenue mobilisation if given the nod in the 2024 elections.

“Tax digitalisation will be implemented across all aspects of tax administration. Everyone will be required to file a very simple tax return electronically through their mobile phone or computer.

“There will be no manual or paper filing of taxes starting in 2025. Faceless assessments will provide transparency and accountability,” he said.
