The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has been accused of lacking empathy for the unemployment challenges facing Ghanaians.

Joyce Bawa Mogtari, a Special Aide to the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Mahama, questioned the NPP's commitment to job creation in a social media post on Monday, June 17.

The former Deputy Transport Minister was responding to doubts raised about Mr. Mahama's pledge to implement 24-hour economy if elected.

The policy, according to the opposition party, is aimed at eradicating the unending unemployment situation and also help boost the economy.

However, critics say the NDC has not been able to properly explain how it intends to roll out the policy, claiming that it is just a vote-buying gimmick.

However, in her post on X, Ms. Mogtari said the doubts and disagreement “beats my mind."

"'In our beloved country, Ghana, the NPP has sold almost all our state assets, especially land, to themselves. In this same country, the NPP could implement red and yellow tracking systems for SHS students without a blueprint.

“Why can't John Mahama implement 24/7 workdays for unemployed and underemployed adults who need sustainable jobs and want to get paid?'" she quizzed.

She further questioned: "'How hard is that? Or is the NPP insensitive to the plight of the Ghanaian who needs to be fully and gainfully employed?'"
