Mahama accuses NPP of resorting to lies and propaganda against 24-hour economy proposal

Former President John Dramani Mahama and the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has accused the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) of attempting to undermine his main policy proposal for the 2024 elections, the 24-hour economy policy. 

Mr Mahama asserted that the NPP’s response to this proposal has been marked by misinformation and propaganda, signaling what he described as an “uneasy calm” within the ruling party.

He claimed that the widespread acceptance of the 24-hour economy policy has unsettled the NPP, prompting them to resort to deceitful tactics in a bid to discredit the proposal in the eyes of the Ghanaian public. 

He further emphasized that Ghanaians, having learned from past experiences, would not be swayed by such tactics, recognizing them as attempts by the NPP to maintain their grip on power through falsehoods.

“The widespread acceptance of the 24-hour policy appears to have sent the NPP campaign into a tailspin, leading to a serious effort to attack it through colony and disinformation in these last few days. But fortified with the knowledge that the days when the NPP assumed that they could use falsehood to deceive Ghanaians for electoral advantage are over,” Mahama stated.

Mahama further asserted that Ghanaians would not believe the NPP, particularly in light of what he described as their “horrific performance” during their seven years in power. He expressed confidence that the electorate would see through the NPP’s tactics and make informed decisions during the upcoming elections.

The NDC’s Policy Dialogue, held on February 22, 2024, aimed to discuss the party’s policy priorities for the forthcoming presidential and parliamentary elections scheduled for December 7, 2024, with a specific focus on the 24-hour economy proposal. The event brought together approximately 200 experts, drawn from the Minority Caucus of Parliament and the Social Democratic LAB thematic groups, covering areas such as human development, finance, economy, and governance.

Mahama’s remarks underscore the intensifying political climate in Ghana as parties gear up for the upcoming elections, with policy proposals and their reception becoming focal points of debate and contention. 

As the campaign season progresses, both the NDC and the NPP are expected to continue advocating for their respective platforms while engaging in robust exchanges over the direction of the country’s future policies and governance.
