Nana Kwame Bediako, Leader of the New Force Movement, has outlined plans to establish technology and innovation hubs to drive Ghana's development across various sectors.

Drawing inspiration from the transformative impact of Silicon Valley on the US economy, Mr Bediako envisions similar benefits for Ghana through his proposed Technology Hub. He emphasised the potential for job creation and economic growth, citing the example of Jeff Bezos' Amazon.

Mr Bediako, during a courtesy visit to the leadership of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) in Accra, highlighted the significance of technology for Ghana's youthful population and stressed the need for sustainable tech hubs in the country.

Despite not being a politician, Mr Bediako emphasised his leadership vision and commitment to addressing Ghana's economic challenges through innovative policies.

He underscored the importance of job creation and regional development, expressing concern about Ghana's overreliance on road transportation and advocating for the expansion of railways to alleviate pollution and congestion in urban areas.

Regarding security, Mr Bediako expressed concerns about environmental degradation and pledged to leverage technology to combat criminal activities, particularly those threatening water resources.
