Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has said considering the nature of business of football clubs, the best way for them is to go paperless and digitize.
Addressing members of the football fraternity during the launch of the 2019/2020 Ghana Football season in Accra, the Vice President said the paperless system should not only be limited to the business community because it has many advantages which football clubs should also benefit from.
According to him, Ghanaian football clubs should embrace the government’s paperless policy to enhance their business operations.
“One important thing both the GFA and the clubs should embrace in this era of digitisation is the paperless system this Government is championing,” Dr Bawumia said.
“The paperless system should not only be synonymous with business or banking transactions because its enormous benefits can extend to football clubs as well.”
“The paperless system should be the way for our clubs because to go paperless is to digitize, and to digitize is to monetize,” the Vice President added.
The league season which is expected to bring back lost livelihoods and entertainment, kicks off next weekend across all league centers in the country.
Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia also noted that government is playing its part to ensure vibrant football in the country by building modern stadia and sports complexes across the country even during the period of embargo.
