The National Communications Director of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Richard Ahiagbah, has said former president John Dramani Mahama must provide details on how he intends to implement a 24-hour economy if elected in 2024.

In a post on social media on Friday, November 17, Mr Ahiagbah argued that simply touting a 24-hour economy is not enough without an outline of the necessary enabling policies and factors.

"Until we see JM's enabling policy plan, his 24-hour economy idea remains a populist stunt akin to a student who vows to score straight A's but is known to be such a student or does not have a study plan that demonstrates how he/she would arrive at the desired result of straight A's. It is just talk at this point," Ahiagbah wrote.

He questioned why Mahama did not implement a 24-hour economy during his 2012-2016 tenure.

"A 24-hour economy cannot happen in a vacuum. First, JM must start by discussing his enabling factors plan that will give impetus to the 24-hour economy," Ahiagbah stated.

The NPP communications director urged Ghanaians to keep faith in the incumbent party, arguing it has "the answers" and will deliver economic recovery."
