MY GOVERNMENT WILL PRIORITISE THE USE OF ELECTRIC VEHICLES IN GHANA – Bawumia Reveals

Under his presidency, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has hinted that Ghanaians will have access to an electric vehicle-powered public transportation system that can reduce travel expenses by thirty to forty per cent.

He noted that the price of fuel and replacement parts dominate the formula used to determine public transportation pricing and that lowering the prices of these variables would significantly lower the cost of transportation for Ghanaians.

According to Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, this can be accomplished by using electric vehicles in the public transportation industry.

“My administration will work to reduce the cost of public transport between 30-40% with the adoption of electric vehicles for public transportation”

“Electric vehicles do not use petrol or diesel and spare parts are minimal. That is what will bring down the fares for EVs” he said.

“More importantly, transport fares for EVs will be stable and the constant and large increases in fares will become a thing of the past” he further explained.

Bawumia also mentioned the housing industry, pledging to collaborate with the private sector there in order to replicate Singapore’s best practices.

“Under a Housing for All policy, I will also have a major focus on the provision of Public Housing in the same manner that Singapore did– We will partner with the private sector to build large housing estates without the government having to borrow or spend”

Also, the National Rental Assistance scheme (which is working so well) will be enhanced to deal with the problem of demands for rent advance of two years and more.
