Revenue from system hits over GHC210 billion in three years

Ursula Owusu-Ekuful said the substantial amount collected through the platform highlighted its pivotal role in streamlining financial transactions across the country

A total of GHC210 billion has been received through by way of government revenue since the platform was introduced in 2020, the Minister of Communications and Digitalisation, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, has disclosed.

She said the substantial amount collected through the platform highlights the pivotal role of the plat­form in streamlining financial transactions, enhancing transparency and bolstering the nation’s fiscal integrity.

Owusu-Ekuful said the number of institutions that had linked to the platform within the short span of three years is in sharp contrast to the 13 that on-boarded the e-ser­vices platform over the same duration, and this clearly demonstrates how valuable the platform has become.

Speaking on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Monday (19 February), the minister said, “This is a totally new system that was built with functionalities that e-services didn’t even think of providing. And so it’s been possible for it to generate [a good] amount of revenue within the three years of its operation, GHC210 billion-plus and that’s just from 136 active users of the [] system.”

She said that the success of the platform also showed the growing trust and confidence of citizens and businesses in digital government platforms, adding: “It reflects a paradigm shift towards digital-first governance, where convenience, accessibility and accountability are prioritised in service delivery.”

The minister said that because of the user-friendly interface and comprehensive array of online functionalities provided by the platform, it has become the corner­stone of Ghana’s digital transformation journey, with 1,507 institutions currently linked to it.
