Dr Kludjeson, a Past President of the (AGI) and Chief Advisor for the Centre for Greater Impact Africa stated that technology was critical to citizen empowerment, and policymakers and members of must advocate the use of technology to increase the country's wealth, which would help solve Ghana's developmental and economic problems.

Despite Ghana's abundant resources such as gold and lumber, Dr Kludjeson lamented that the country had not produced anything.

He cited examples of introducing and teaching youngsters Information, Communication, and Technology in the absence of computers, with some improvising with stones and other items.
