As every contender prepares for the general elections in 2024, the pressure is on. This applies not just to the presidential candidates but also to all other politicians running for other offices. As a result, they are all attempting to leave an impact with their impromptu campaigns and electoral pledges that have recently generated conversation.

Not just that, the verbal attacks on each other are becoming increasingly concerning at the moment. The recent one witnessed was Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia who is the presidential flag bearer for the ruling party, New Patriotic Party (NPP) countering John Mahama’s 24-hour Economy Policy.

This back and forth has been going on between the top candidates gunning for the main seat which is the Presidency! In a recent campaign promise made by Dr Mahamudu Bawumia while addressing the 57th Congregation of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

The VP said that he would make it possible for Ghanaians to use their Ghana card to buy cars on credit and pay by instalment. He added that this idea is part of the digitalization processes going on in Ghana at the moment. He also said discussions about this new initiative are ongoing with different automobile companies in Ghana to start the program. He also spoke about credit scoring, read an excerpt below:

” The Ghana Card will serve as the cornerstone for a credit system in Ghana, with plans for selected car manufacturers, particularly Solar Taxi, to offer cars on credit to individuals.

Ghana will be implementing a credit scoring system for individuals next year. Every individual will be assigned a credit score. Currently, our credit scoring system is non-existent, leading to perceptions of risk. This initiative will change that. ”

Speaking further, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia said the Ghana card is going to be the only thing required of an individual to buy cars and make payment by instalment overtime. This latest campaign promise by the VP has caused lots of reactions among Ghanaians, including celebrities.
