Why CSOs are not probing NDC’s 24-Hour Economy – Bright Simons explains –

Bright Simons of IMANI Africa has opened up about why CSOs have not probed the National Democratic Congress’ 24-Hour Economy.

He believes that in this election, they have much bigger issues to address than manifesto promises.

Also, he argues that “24 hour economy” sounds more like an aspirational “policy VISION” than a specific policy itself.

So they are rather waiting for the linked policies before a better probe can be made.

Making this known in a tweet, he said “Some friends have asked me why CSO folks are not probing NDC’s “24-hour economy claims” like we did NPP’s Free SHS. For me, 2 simple reasons: A. This election year, CSOs have bigger issues on their hand than manifesto promises. So, BOTH parties’ promises are being ignored.

Adding that “More critical, at least for me, is that “24 hour economy” sounds more like an aspirational “policy VISION” than a specific policy itself. Like Kuffour-era “Golden Age of Business” or “War on Indiscipline”. Hard to probe those. So, we are waiting for the linked policies”.

The National Democratic Congress is pushing to introduce a 24-hour economy in Ghana to help improve productivity and create more jobs for the teeming unemployed youth in Ghana.

The former President of Ghana who is the leader of the largest opposition political party believes that this is a game changer and will help address the seeming challenges in the country’s economy.
