John Dramani Mahama, flagbearer, NDC

The flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has urged members of the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI) to set aside political differences and work towards the growth and expansion of businesses to boost the Ghanaian economy.

Former president John Mahama said businesses should work together towards a “Ghana we want,” indicating that challenges that plague the economy affect every business owner.

“Let’s put all our political differences aside and work to build the Ghana We Want together, for our economic woes know no party colours,” the former president told the AGI council at a meeting to solicit the views of the business community in the drafting of the NDC’s 2024 manifesto.

Mr. Mahama also decried the level of mismanagement the economy has seen over the last seven years, stressing that his 24-hour economic policy will seek to tackle the many challenges in the economy.

“Time is not on our side, the scale of the destruction of our economy is so colossal we must more than double our efforts by working 24 hours around the clock to restore our country to where it belongs.”

He emphasised that the 24-hour economic policy would create a conducive and business-friendly environment by providing security and a constant power supply for the operations of critical sectors of the economy.

“Under the 24-hour economy, my government will work to ensure that critical public sector
Services are provided round-the-clock to support businesses.

“In addition to providing a safe and secure environment for business transactions 24 hours through adequate street lighting and security patrols, there will be 24-hour operation at the ports, the Lands Commission, Office of the Registrar of Companies, and our courts, among other critical public sectors that must operate 24 hours to support businesses,” he added.

The NDC leader further noted that the next NDC government’s industrial policy will support the growth of industries in all 16 regions based on their comparative advantages.

Also, the government will partner with the private sector to establish industrial processing zones in various regions, especially for crops such as palm, cashew, cotton, groundnuts, cocoa, soya, cassava, and shea nut amongst others.
