24-hour economy initiative: Extraordinary times require extraordinary interventions – Mahama

The 24-hour economy initiative is the answer to Ghana’s economic challenges for now and the future, flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Dramani Mahama has said.

Mr Mahama says extraordinary times require extraordinary interventions hence the 24-hour economy proposal.

“Extraordinary times require extraordinary interventions; the 24-hour economy initiative is the answer for NOW and the future, he wrote on X.

Earlier while addressing Ghanaians on Sunday, June 9, he said “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, Mr Mahama said “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.”
