Asiedu Nketia, the Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has unveiled plans to reduce electricity prices for factories that commit to working night shifts as part of the party’s vision for a 24-hour economy.
Nketia explained that this incentive is aimed at encouraging industries to operate round the clock and will be implemented if the NDC is elected into power.
“We intend to reduce the price of electricity at night for people who will work at night. So for workers in factories, welding, among others that use electricity, we will reduce the price of the electricity you use,” he said during a party address.
The move is expected to generate more job opportunities for the youth in Ghana, according to Nketia, who emphasized the significance of this initiative in creating employment opportunities.
Nketia urged Ghanaians to consider the proposal, stating that it has the potential to benefit all citizens.
The NDC has been vigorously promoting its 24-hour economy vision as part of its manifesto ahead of the upcoming elections, with this latest promise being a key component of their economic strategy.
