Accra, July 12, GNA - Four million households nationwide are expected to be embossed with digital address plates free of charge for easy identification, this year.
The exercise, which would start on August 8, would be conducted by over 12,000 Nation Builders Corps (NaBCo) personnel in collaboration with Ghana Students Union.
NaBCo and Spatial Planning and Land Use Unit of the various metropolitan, municipal and district assemblies would supervise the implementation of the exercise.
Dr Ibrahim Anyars, the Chief Executive Officer of NaBCo, said this to the media during a stakeholders meeting in Accra on Friday.
The meeting was chaired by Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
It was attended by regional ministers, chief executives of the metropolitan, municipal and district assemblies, officials from Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, Ministry of Special Development Initiatives and the Nation Builders Corps.
The meeting also provided necessary information on the upcoming Digital Address Day slated for August 8, which is dubbed: "8:8 Day".
Dr Anyars said NaBCo personnel would be trained to generate digital addresses and tag them on households, adding that at least 21 houses would be tagged daily in each district.
He said NaBCo and the various assemblies have begun consultations with traditional authorities and other relevant groups at the district and regional level on the exercise to ensure maximum co-operation.
