Run 24 Hours Economy To Reduce Unemployment – Akufo-Addo Told



The central regional chairman of the Liberal Party of Ghana and 2020 parliamentary candidate for Agona East, Samuel Aryeequaye has joined calls for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to introduce 24-hour work in the public sector to improve productivity and reduce unemployment.


In a media interview, the politician cum businessman said this will increase the workforce and productivity of the nation.

“Ghana runs an eight-hour economy. We go to work at 8 am, and we close at 5pm, and we shut the business and everyone goes home meanwhile we need to create more employment. And so, if even we added one more shift, you can imagine the number of people we can employ. Government can give industries a tax incentive to do additional work to increase productivity.”

In order to assure responsiveness, efficiency, and effectiveness in service delivery at all levels of government, the new strategy would, among other things, restructure the procedures and increase the ability of the people who deliver the public service, he explained.

Additionally, he proposed the implementation of “input and output analysis” to track employees, which he believes, if carefully implemented, would increase the nation’s GDP and better position the government to pay employees’ salaries.

He said that is one of the key secrets to the prosperity and lower unemployment of almost all western nations.
