New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Damongo and Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel Abu Jinapor has intimated that since the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government (2013-2017) of John Mahama failed to ensure steady electricity supply during its tenure, it will be unable to implement its flagship 24-hour economy policy which requires electricity to implement.

He wondered how without being able to keep the lights on, the 24-hour economy can be run.

“The last time they were in government from 2013 to 2017, for the four years they were in government, they subjected this country to dumsor, they subjected this country to erratic power supply. And therefore when they were in government, even in the day, not in the night,” he said in Damongo last Saturday( 17th February 2024) after being popularly acclaimed as the 2024 NPP parliamentary candidate for Damongo.

Mr Jinapor assured the NPP of victory at the 2024 General Elections for both the parliamentary and presidential elections in the Savannah Region.

Former President and flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has been trumpeting a 24-hour economy that he believes will breathe fresh life into the ailing Ghanaian economy.

This decision has received varied opinions from individuals, politicians, civil society organizations, and the business community.

Whereas the proposal has been hailed by NDC members as the blueprint for resolving the worsening unemployment rate and wobbly economy, members of the governing New Patriotic Party say it’s a bogus idea and an afterthought.
