‘The 24-hour economy is the answer to Ghana’s economic challenges – Mahama

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has stated that his proposed 24-hour economy initiative is the answer to solving Ghana’s financial and economic difficulties.

In discussing issues of national interest in a special live broadcast themed ‘Mahama Conversations,’ the former president said the proposed 24-hour economy initiative is the answer to Ghana’s challenges in the now and in the future.

Mr. Mahama said the initiative will create an enabling and conducive environment for businesses, companies, and government agencies to create more jobs and recruit more people into employment.

He outlined the benefits of the 24-hour economy initiative, which he said will enhance and strengthen the standard of living of many more Ghanaians.

“The 24-hour initiative is the answer for now and in the future. It will create an enabling environment with deliberate policies for businesses, companies, and government institutions to operate 24/7 in a three-eight-hour shift system.

“In addition to the traditional 8-hour shift system, the two additional work shifts that my administration will introduce will double and sometimes triple the number of jobs that participate in public and private entities that we currently have.

“This is the 24-hour economy optimization strategy: giving more to society, providing efficient service delivery, and generating decent and well-paying jobs. The benefits of this system will include but not limited to; 24-hour port and harbour services, 24-hour customs services, 24-hour DVLA services, 24-hour agro-processing factories, 24-hour manufacturing industries, 24-hour construction companies and many more.”
