Ghana’s Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, will be the recipient of the prestigious Digital Leader Of The Year Award at the 9th Ghana Information Technology & Telecom Awards (GITTA) 2019, which will be held at the Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel, Accra, on the night of 28 June 2019.

The award is in recognition of the Vice-President’s “audacious innovations, leadership in digitisation and automation, promotion of a cost-efficient and sustainable economy”, according to a statement issued by the organisers of the award, InstinctWave.

The honour, the statement said, recognises Dr Batumia’s promotion and enhancement of digitisation “in a most enviable way”.

Some of the projects for which the vice-president is being recognised include the Paperless Port, Digital Address System, and Mobile Money Interoperability, just to mention a few, which “are as a result of an ingenious leadership style”.

“This style has supported and continues to support national and corporate growth”, the organiser said.

Dr Bawumia will publicly receive a specially-designed trophy and a certificate “for his outstanding leadership, which has transformed Ghana’s digital landscape”.

GITTA 2019 will reward and recognise not only the products and diverse innovations that keep the ICT & telecom sectors thriving, but also the companies and people who make the industry great. GIITA is open to all players and stakeholders in the ICT ecosystem.

GITTA is the most-celebrated ICT awards event which has grown to be the ‘Oscars’ of the ICT and telecom industry, attracting the crème de la crème and top decision makers in the sector.

InstinctWave CEO Akin Naphtal congratulated and lauded the Vice-President for his zeal and commitment to the digitisation agenda, a major plank of the government’s desire to move Ghana beyond aid.

“We are very delighted and proud to have a vice-president who is very zealous about the ICT industry. His commitment to driving the digitisation agenda to increase government revenue and facilitate ease of doing business in Ghana is worth emulating. He has, indeed, proven that the agenda of the government to digitalise the economy of Ghana is a success story”.

The awards night provides an exceptional opportunity for stakeholders to network, entertain clients, and reinforce relationships with partners and reward staff with exceptional performance.
