 “Rescue Me” is an application designed by Rescue Info-Solutions and Technology Ltd. for prompt responses pertaining to emergency issues in our societies.
The App is able to detect the location of the user at all times as all users are mandated to disclose their location  through a Ten (10) second video to proof dire need of the situation.

Hon. Odotei added that, the Ministry was ready to partner any local manufacturer to find solutions to problems in our society. It is in this regard that the Ministry is putting together a “Tech in Ghana” conference to give opportunity to other local Technology Companies to showcase what they have in terms of solutions through technology.
He enumerated a number of policies that the Ministry is embarking on to digitize the country:  The National ID card system, Property Addressing System, Digital Migration among others are all initiatives the Ministry is embarking on to help make life easy and comfortable.
