ACCRA, (CAJ News) – GHANA has officially welcomed Uber, the technology company that connects riders and drivers, to Accra.

This is a culmination of the signing of a statement of understanding (SOU) between the Ministry of Transport of the United States-based Uber.

Alon Lits, General Manager for Uber Sub-Saharan Africa, said the SOU was a fantastic first step for Ghana to become a smart city of the future and shows the critical role technology would play in creating thousands of economic opportunities for Ghanaians as well as assisting in reducing congestion on roads.

“Ghana is a top priority for Uber and we are excited about this agreement to update regulations, drive innovation, create thousands of entrepreneurship opportunities, and provide safe, reliable transport options for the people of Ghana,” Lits said.

Ghana’s adoption of Uber is an excellent example of a tech savvy nation – not only of consumers but drivers as well. Uber’s technology has the potential to reduce the number of cars on the road and create thousands of economic opportunities across Accra and Ghana.
