Social commentator, Bernard Allotey Jacobs, has applauded Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia for his digital initiatives towards the development of Ghana.

Allotey Jacobs noted that digitalization is the impetus for Ghana's development and as a result called on Ghanaians to support the Ghana Card.

In a brief comment on Peace FM's "Kokrokoo" programme, the former NDC Central Regional Chairman stated that the "Ghana Card eliminates corruption and bribery".

He advised the citizenry not to fall for the chicanery of the detractors of the Ghana Card initiative.
