Presidential Candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the 2024 general elections, John Dramani Mahama, has stated that the party’s proposal to create a conducive atmosphere for a 24-hour economy to thrive is a well-thought-through idea.
Political opponents have largely criticised the idea saying it is not a novelty, and cannot transform the Ghanaian economy in any way.
On the other hand, some have lauded the proposal as one that could be a game-changer for Ghana’s economy.
Many of those against it believe aspects of Ghana’s economy already operate a 24-hour system, whereas others argue the country lacks the right infrastructure to efficiently run such a system.
But speaking at the 9th Ghana CEO Network Business Cocktail, the former President insisted that the idea is a game-changer because it has been well thought through.
He pledged that the next NDC administration will pursue projects and programmes to transform Ghana into a fully-fledged 24-hour economy by optimising available resources.
He said the 24-hour economy forms part of the NDC’s vision to build the Ghana We Want and will be premised on building an industrialised, inclusive, and resilient economy that creates well-paying jobs, creating an equitable, healthy, and prosperous nation, developing well-planned, safe communities while protecting the natural environment, building effective, efficient, and dynamic institutions for national development; and strengthening Ghana’s role in African and international affairs.
