Views: 220

Ghana Government is serious about open source software. The Government has already asked the Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT to provide an open source policy.

While speaking at the free and open source software media training conference in Ghana, Ghanaian communications minister Mike Oquaye said that the use of free and open source software was important to the government because it allowed them to reduce costs, improved security and retain ownership of its own technology. The minister also said that “Ghana's legislators of which I am a member use Linux to support the computing facilities at Parliament House.”
