Mahama’s 24-hour economy too confusing to make sense of because of legislation – Nana Akomea


The vice chairman of the Bawumia campaign Team 2024 has disclosed to the public that the National Democratic Congress flagbearer John Mahama’s alleged  24-hour economy plan should he win the 2024 presidential vote lacks clarity due to legislation.

He spoke with great amazement as to why a market could be legislated.

On Citi TV’s Face to Face program, the chairman was left wondering if such a proposal of Mahama could force its way into the practicality for Ghanaians who are used to seeing things done traditionally.

He said, “What will emerge in the campaign is Mahama says 24-hour economy. Me, I don’t understand it. When you ask them, they say it means people selling ‘waakye’ can do so throughout the night. When you ask another, they say farmers can farm throughout the night.”

“They say they will put street lights there, give free electricity and all of that. Depending on who you speak to, they give you all kinds of explanations. Oye Bampoe Addo said this week that farmers can farm throughout the day. So it’s not very clear. You can’t legislate market conditions, you can’t pass a law and say Citi FM and all radio stations should run 24 hours,” Nana Akomea stated.

John Dramani Mahama, as part of his campaign promise, said the implementation of the 24-hour economy will create new, decent, and well-paying jobs for the teeming unemployed youth.

The 24-hour economy, he said, will improve the living standards of Ghanaians.
