The Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, says the government has engaged the National Sports Authority (NSA) to digitalize tickets for football games in the country.
This is part of the country’s digitalization agenda to ensure the easy accessibility of products and services.
Speaking at the launch of the National Assay Laboratory, the Vice President stated that talks have already started between his outfit and the NSA on the agenda to make tickets accessible remotely for football fans across the country.
“The government under the leadership of His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo recognizes that our progress as a nation in the modern world is inextricably linked to digitalization and will therefore continue its adoption for the enhanced service delivery,” Bawumia said.
“It’s a critical path for our nation to remain competitive in the world of today and tomorrow. Government is willing to support any institution, public or private, which intends on implementing digital initiatives for efficiency.”
“Actually, we have engaged the National Sports Authority because we need to digitalize football tickets to enter the stadium. You should be able to sit at home, buy your tickets and go and enter the stadium without any (scheming) at the gate.
“We are going to do exactly that, and you will see it in the next months that we will all be using our phones to buy tickets to watch football in the country,” he added.
