Mahama promises ant-sized government when voted

John Dramani Mahama promised to appoint a handful of ministries when elected.

Along with cutting back on spending, he pledged to utilize the savings to raise people’s standards of living.


A more efficient government is what I pledge. He stated, “We’ll reduce government spending and have fewer ministers. The money we save will be used to improve the lives of our teachers and other national workers,” at a speech on Sunday, June 9.

Reiterating his 24-hour economy concept is what Mr. Mahama believes would drive economic growth.

He argued that the 24-hour project is the way to go for now and the future.

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 be limited to; 24-hour port and harbor 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.”
