The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has promised Ghanaians to have a few ministers if he is voted for in this year’s elections to become president again.

He also promised to reduce government spending and use the savings to improve the lives of the people.

“I promise you a leaner government. We’ll have fewer ministers and cut government expenditure, and any savings that we make will be used to better the lives of our teachers and other national workers,” he said in an address on Sunday, June 9.

Mr Mahama also reiterated that his 24-hour economy idea is what will develop the economy.

The 24-hour initiative is the answer for now and in the future, he said.

He said, “It will create an enabling environment with deliberate policies for businesses, companies, and government institutions to operate 24/7 in a three-eight-hour shift system.”

In addition to the traditional 8-hour shift system, Mr Mahama said “the two additional work shifts that my administration will introduce will double and sometimes triple the number of jobs that participate in public and private entities that we currently have.

“This is the 24-hour economy optimization strategy: giving more to society, providing efficient service delivery, and generating decent and well-paying jobs.

“The benefits of this system will include but not limited to; 24-hour port and harbour services, 24-hour customs services, 24-hour DVLA services, 24-hour agro-processing factories, 24-hour manufacturing industries, 24-hour construction companies and many more.”
