Bawumia claimed that because the former president is ignorant of the concept of a 24-hour economy, Ghanaians need not cast their ballots for him in the general elections of 2024.
Ghanaians have been urged by Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to disregard National Democratic Congress (NDC) member John Dramani Mahama’s proposal for a 24-hour economy.
Bawumia claims that the country has already begun implementing that program, with fuel businesses and hospitals running round-the-clock operations.
John Mahama claims to have a fresh concept. What’s the concept? He says he’s in favor of a 24-hour economy. Not only does he not comprehend that policy, but In Ghana today, most hospitals, energy companies, water companies, petrol stations, and many chop bars are open twenty-four hours a day. Thanks to digitalization, you may send and receive money around the clock these days. He therefore doesn’t comprehend his policy. No sense is made of it.
Therefore, I’m asking for your support in 2024 since I’ll be bringing new ideas and policies. Dr. Bawumia is the future; Mahama is the past. We would argue that we have a Dumsor economy and that a 24-hour economy is not possible in Dumsor if John Mahama were present. So you want to support Dr. Bawumia in 2024? We’re going to lead this nation to unprecedented heights, Dr. Bawumia declared.
On a related note, should John Mahama prevail in the general elections of 2024, he has pledged to revisit the 10% bet tax.
As part of his “Building Ghana Tour” across the Bono East area, Mahama said this to the young at Techiman Timber Market and Techiman Magazine.
“I’ve heard a lot of young people discuss sports betting. When it comes to government, we will consider the total amount of taxes levied by the current administration, not simply the taxes on gambling, Mahama added.
The Ghana Revenue Authority formally imposed a 10% withholding tax on all wagers, games, and lottery winnings on August 15, 2023.
This came after the government decided to change the Tax Act, imposing a withholding tax on winnings from lotteries and sports betting.
