My 24-hour Economy Initiative Will Solve Ghana’s Economic Challenges And Change Lives - Mahama

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama says his 24-hour economy initiative will be the best solution to Ghana's economic challenges when implemented. 

According to him, the policy will not only strengthen Ghana's economy but will change the lives of 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 be 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.” Mr Mahama who is seeking to be president again said during a live broadcast dubbed ‘Mahama Conversations'.
