Vice-President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia
The Vice-President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia says that the government is working towards building a complete functional national property addressing system by November.
The system would include the printing and affixing of a number plate with a street name, a street number, a house number, and a digital address.
The Vice President said this in a radio interview on Accra based Peace FM on Tuesday morning.
In view of the addressing system, he said that the government was working with the Land Use and Spatial Planning Authority in that regard, noting that they have already generated over four million unique addresses.
“By November every property in Ghana would have a unique address. We will begin next month the four million that have been generated, start printing the number plates, and then start affixing them to those houses that have been generated. Also, there are certain streets that have no names, they will also be named and presented to the metropolitan, municipal, and district chief executives (MMDCEs) to confirm.
“We have decided to go for unique addresses for each property … a street name, a street number and then a house number and then a digital address, for every household, and we are starting with the printing of the four million now and then we will continue”, he reiterated.
He added that “By November we would have all of this done and it will just be left with the printing. We have done the digital address system and this is something we’ve not had since independence and digitisation has allowed us to do so”, he said.
