Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the Vice President, claims that former president John Dramani Mahama is unaware of the 24-hour economy policy he is putting forth.
The Vice President claims that the country is already implementing that policy, with hospitals and fuel companies running 24-hour operations, among others.
Consequently, Dr. Bawumia called on Ghanaians to cast their votes for the New Patriotic Party and disregard Mahama in the 2024 elections since he has nothing fresh to offer.
“John Mahama says he has a new idea. What is the idea? He says he wants a 24-hour economy. He doesn’t even understand that policy. Today in Ghana, our hospitals work 24 hours, our electricity company works 24 hours, our water company works 24 hours, our fuel stations work 24 hours, and many chop bars work 24 hours. Today because of digitalisation, you can transfer money 24 hours, you can receive money 24 hours… So he doesn’t understand his own policy. It doesn’t make sense.”
“So I want you to vote for me in 2024 because I will bring a new vision, I will bring a new policy. Mahama is the past, Dr Bawumia is the future. If John Mahama was there, we would say we have a dumsor economy, you can’t have a 24-hour economy in dumsor. So, you want to vote for Dr Bawumia in 2024, we will take the country to new heights,” Dr Bawumia stated.
