As a people, if we are creative in leveraging today's digital technology, we could make it virtually impossible for kidnapping, for example, to become rampant in our homeland Ghana. As we speak, there are free location apps, which could empower us to live and enjoy our lives safely.
The police, fire service and other emergency service providers in many nations in the developed world, recommend downloading the free what3words smartphone app, because it has helped them reach those needing their help quickly, by pinpointing their exact locations.
Since we are living in dangerous times, one humbly recommends the free what3words smartphone app - which is similar to the GhanaPost location app, but is much, much more robust and reliable - to every Ghanaian who cares about his or her personal security: especially primary school children, high school and tertiary students, as well as members of all Ghana's security agencies.
Above all, I recommend it to those in Ghana, who are helping to fight the criminals engaged in the illegal gold mining, illegal logging and illegal sand-winnning that is laying to waste, vast swathes of the Ghanaian countryside - and destroying our quality of life today, and compromising the well-being of future generations. Using the free what3words app, will enable the security agencies detailed to flush them out, to be more effective, in the all-important fight to protect the remainder of our nation's natural heritage.
