The National Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Henry Nana Boakye, popularly known as Nana B has described as a ‘hoax’ and an ‘dead on arrival’ the new policy put up by the 2024 Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
According to him, the policy is dead on arrival because the Ghanaian economy already operates 24-hours a day. This is possible due to the digitilisation of the economy by the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
“Mahama’s 24-hour economy policy is dead on arrival, I think he didn’t really through it well because the economy already operates 24/7…,” he said in an interview monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com.
Former President John Mahama has promised to ensure the Ghanaian economy runs 24/7 when he gets the opportunity to rule the country again.
“The 24-hour economy may have finally resonated with Ghanaians. It may be classified as an idea whose time has come due to Ghana’s self-inflicted economic crisis today because the 24-hour economy initiative was well-thought-through and captured on page 105 of the NDC’s 2020 People’s Manifesto,” he said.
A 24-hour economy refers to an economic system where businesses and activities operate around the clock, 24 hours a day.
This concept has gained prominence in modern society due to increased globalisation, technological advancements, and changing consumer behaviour.
