Ghana Post has embarked on a nationwide digital property address generation and property tagging exercise.
Its field agents are moving from house to house with valid identification cards and branded Ghana Post GPS costumes to generate digital property addresses and tag properties.
Generation of the digital address is free, but tagging of properties attracts a fee.
Ghana Post is charging GHÂ¢50 for residential buildings and GHÂ¢100 for commercial offices.
Payments for the plates can be made at the various post offices.

A statement issued by Head of Corporate Communications at Ghana Post, Kobi Hemaa Osisiadan-Bekoe, explained that field agents are required to generate digital addresses for everyone and tag properties for individuals and organisations upon request.
She appealed to community leaders, including chiefs, queen mothers and assemblymen, as well as youth groups and households, to give accredited agents the needed assistance in the discharge of their duties.
The digital address system is providing an effective means of addressing every location and property to facilitate the implementation of key government policies and business transactions.
Osisiadan-Bekoe encouraged citizens who have not yet generated digital address for their homes and offices to do so.

She explained that citizens are encouraged to tag their properties to enhance visibility and identification, enable business and service providers to locate you easily, as well as enhance home delivery.
The digital address is a compulsory requirement to obtain national ID card.
â€œIn addition, citizens should remember to give their digital addresses to NADMO, Ghana National Fire Service, Ghana Ambulance Service and other emergency service providers for easy location and assistance when the need arise.
