Ayariga rejects Bawumia’s digitization drive and Mahama’s 24-hour economy as solutions to Ghana’s problems.

Leader of the All People’s Congress (APC) Hassan Ayariga, has shot down John Dramani Mahama’s 24-hour economy saying it is not the panacea to Ghana’s ailing economy.

The 24-hour economy is an economic model whereby the whole or part of the architecture or infrastructure of the economy adjusts to support 24-hour operations of businesses, factories, government services, restaurants, shops, healthcare delivery, banking and other services throughout the day and night.

According to John Mahama, the policy will ensure that no labour lies idle in Ghana since workers are going to run on a shift system of three phases to ensure employment for all and higher productivity.

In this stead, the government will provide utility incentive and security for such businesses to cushion them to be able to run the shift system.

During his recent media engagement with the public on Sunday, June 09, 2024, John Mahama disclosed that the police service will need fresh and additional 25,000 officers to cater for the extra shifts that would be run by the businesses.

The policy, which has been welcomed by many Civil Society Organisations and labour unions such as the Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA) and others, according to Mahama Ayariga, the founder and leader of the APC, is not the solution to Ghana’s problems.

At a press conference in Accra Tuesday, June 11, 2024, Mr. Ayariga indicated that the policy, together with Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s digitalisation drive, is not the solution to the woes of the land, but rather, a leader who will champion revolutionary policies to turn the fortunes of the land.
