Extraordinary times require extraordinary interventions – Mahama as he touts his 24-hour economy

Former President John Dramani Mahama provided a bold plan to address Ghana’s unemployment crisis during his Mahama Conversations session on June 9, 2024.

He proposed the implementation of a 24-hour economy, which would operate in three eight-hour shifts, to create jobs and boost productivity.

Mahama criticized the current administration’s handling of the economy, highlighting the stark rise in national debt and the impact of the Domestic Debt Exchange Program on businesses and individuals.

He argued that the traditional eight-hour work system is inadequate for the country’s economic needs, advocating for a shift to a 24-hour operational model across various sectors, including ports, healthcare, manufacturing, and financial institutions.

This initiative, he explained, would not only provide more job opportunities but also enhance service delivery and efficiency.
