Posted On


In a major step to boost the economy, Eric Opoku, MP for Asunafo South, announced that over 9000 new jobs will be created at the nation’s ports.


This is part of the new 24-hour strategy promised by NDC flagbearer John Mahama.

The plan aims to enhance employment and improve port operations, positioning the nation as a significant player in global trade.

Eric Opoku, speaking on NDC360, outlined the NDC’s vision to transform port operations.

He explained that the 24-hour economy would reduce congestion, cut shipping delays, and improve logistics efficiency. Continuous goods movement will match global shipping schedules, reducing bottlenecks.

Sammy Gyamfi, host of NDC360 and NDC Communications Officer, added that the 24-hour economy would also ensure round-the-clock passport processing at all centers nationwide.

He described the system as a three-shift, 8-hour arrangement designed to address delays at passport offices.

In a post, Gyamfi emphasized that 24-hour passport services would eliminate early morning queues and long waiting times for passports.

He highlighted that operating 24/7 in three shifts would create more jobs and provide better passport services.

Gyamfi also envisioned benefits from 24-hour services at the DVLA, ports, and customs, calling the #Mahama24HourEconomy a “Game-Changer.”

This ambitious initiative is expected to significantly impact the nation’s economy, improving service delivery and creating thousands of jobs, thus benefiting citizens across the country.
