I’ll bridge digital divide when I become President – Mahama

Former President John Dramani Mahama has pledged to bridge the digital divide in Ghana should he be elected as president in the upcoming elections.

Mahama, who served as the President of Ghana from 2012 to 2017, emphasised the importance of digital literacy and internet access in today’s globalised world.

Addressing journalists in Accra on Sunday, he indicated that both the present and future were digital for which reason no one could be left behind.

He outlined a comprehensive plan that includes investing in infrastructure to extend broadband internet access to rural and underserved areas, improving the quality of ICT education in schools, and providing support for tech startups and digital entrepreneurs.

Mr Mahama stressed that access to the internet was no longer a luxury but a necessity for education, business, and participation in the global economy.

He said there was the need to ensure that every Ghanaian, regardless of where they lived or their economic status, had the opportunity to connect to the world.

Mahama further highlighted the role of digital technology in fostering innovation and creating jobs.
