Government has announced that the digitization of all transactions in the public sector will be done by June 2020.
This means cash will no longer be accepted for service delivery in the public sector by June next year.
According to Vice President, Dr. Muhammudu Bawumia who announced this at a forum organized by Ishmael Yamson and Associates, a pilot exercise has already been completed in the Tourism Ministry ahead of the implementation.
He says the move is to block financial leakage in the public service.
“So if you want a service, you would ave to go to one portal so that you can do everything online.”
He expressed optimism the exercise will increase domestic revenue.
“When you do that you are eliminating a lot of middle men, of course goro boys,” he said.
