'We’ll create 24-hour economy with decent jobs, salaries' – Mahama

Former President John Mahama has established that his next government will explore a 24-hour economy in which factories and businesses will work everyday.

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) reiterated his pledge to provide one million decent jobs for all Ghanaians.

Speaking at the virtual launch of the party’s retail campaign in Sefwi Wiawso in the Western North region on Wednesday, 7 October 2020, Mr Mahama explained that when factories and businesses are made to run on a daily basis, production of goods for export and local consumption will create “decent jobs with decent salaries and will allow people to live a dignified life.”
