Yaw Buaben Asamoa, a former Adenta constituency lawmaker and ex-member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), has dismissed former President John Dramani Mahama's 24-hour economy proposal, describing it as nothing more than a mere slogan.
Mahama, who leads the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), recently pledged to implement a 24-hour economy if he is elected as President again.
The former President emphasized that the initiative is a crucial part of his manifesto aimed at ending unemployment and enhancing the living standards of Ghanaians.
According to him, the current NPP-led government under President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has failed the citizens.
During an interview on Peace FM's "Kokrokoo" morning show, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, now the spokesperson for Alan Kyerematen's Movement for Change (MFC), took the opportunity to question the feasibility of Mahama's promises.
Buaben Asamoa expressed skepticism about Mahama's proposed implementation measures of the 24-hour economy initiative.
"Whatever he can do for Ghana, he's done it already. His 24-hour economy is nothing but a slogan; there is nothing new in it," Buaben Asamoa asserted.
