Convenor of Fix the Country Oliver Barker Vormawor has shot down the 24-Hour Economy Policy by John Mahama, 2024 flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress.

Barker-Vormawor states the policy proposal is “empty Sloganeering and strange”.

“24H Economy is such a strange choice as a flagship policy agenda. Even Worse. It’s empty!

Sloganeering = Fanfooling. Bɛt this is Ghana!” He wrote.

The Former President and flagbearer of the opposition 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.

Per the information bulletin shared by the party, the “24-hour Economy will be a deliberate policy intervention by the next NDC/Mahama government to encourage and support certain businesses and companies to operate 24/7, preferably in a three-shift system of 8 hours each, by creating an enabling environment that promotes productivity, competitiveness and well-paying jobs.”

“The 24-hour Economy will be mainly anchored on Mahama’s overarching vision to create sustainable jobs for Ghanaians. This will be achieved through his agenda to: modernize and mechanize agriculture; provide incentives for the private sector to thrive; promote agro-processing and manufacturing; and transform Ghana into an import substitution and export-led economy, among other

“The 24-hour economy policy will be a major boost for John Mahama’s import substitution and export drive. This will stabilize our national currency, improve our reserves, bring down inflation and interest rates, create more employment opportunities, and improve livelihoods.” The party said.
