Almost 13,000 recruits of the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) are to be deployed on a special exercise across the country to generate digital addresses for four million residential properties.
The exercise, christened “8:8 day” in reference to its start date of August 8, 2019, will involve a workforce of 50 each in 25 separate teams in the districts.
It is expected to be carried out within six weeks.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of NABCO, Dr. Ibrahim Anyars, who briefed the media after a meeting of stakeholders for the implementation of the National Digital Property Addressing and House Studying Project at the Jubilee House yesterday, said the recruits would each emboss 21 houses per day at no cost to property owners.
The meeting, which was chaired by Vice-President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, was to provide a briefing on the upcoming Digital Address Day, also known as 8:8 day, to ensure that the exercise began on a good note and helped to ease the identification of properties through the digital property address system.
Dr. Anyars said NABCO and the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) would engage in some publicity to alert the public about the exercise.
