The President of IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe has claimed that an initial assessment of the implementation of the paperless system at the country’s ports has shown a “record” revenue collection improvement in just a single day.
According to him, revenue at the port increased to GHc69 million in just a day – a figure he said is impressive after the implementation of the system.
He however heaped praise on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his vision to introduce the system after insisting that the amount recorded is a “record” in Ghana’s history.
“Record! Kudos to the Vice-President Bawumia, Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta and the President We need more on Ports Efficiency!” his comment read.
Adding that, “I’m not sure if it is a trend though. It could be due to clearing backlog cargo due to the paperless system. Still good news.”
The paperless Port Transaction system successfully commenced on September 1, 2017.
