The public will soon be able to use commercial taxi drivers’ services from anywhere within the Greater Accra Region thanks to a digital system that will connect them to, according to Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia’s announcement on Wednesday.
This system will be similar to the digital platforms used by Uber and Bolt.
He said that by the end of the year, the whole public and private transportation sectors in the area will have switched over to a “Tap and Go” system that can be used with oyster cards.
The vice president urged politicians to avoid using derogatory language and spreading false information and instead concentrate on finding answers to the nation’s challenges.
At the Pentecost Convention Centre in Gomoa-Fetteh, in the Central Region, the Vice President spoke at the beginning of the 46th session of the General Council Meeting of the Church of Pentecost.
He also praised the Church of Pentecost for its initiative and encouraged a forthcoming conference between the church and politics that is set for June 2023.
Apostle Eric Nyamekye, the Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, thanked the leadership for their services to the church during his report on the “State of the Church” during the 46th Session of the General Council Meeting of the Church of Pentecost.
During his five years as steward, the church saw a 7.9% increase in membership, reaching 3,597,955 as of December 2022.
The European Commission has given the Pentecost University and five other top worldwide universities a grant for 2.69 million euros to study robotics, cyber-physical systems, and artificial intelligence.
Although the church’s programs for education, health, women’s ministry, and youth and children’s ministry were successful, Apostle Nyamekye expressed disappointment over the nationwide outbreak of cocoa disease and the ongoing difficulties preventing the church’s expansion in cocoa-growing regions.
He urged district ministers and area leaders to come up with solutions to these problems.
