National Communications Officer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has shared details of how his party's flagbearer 24-hour economy policy will make the acquisition of passports easier for Ghanaians.

He expressed concern about the delay in passport processing and assured the issue would be resolved soon if Mr John Dramani Mahama becomes president.  

"I have seen many people lament the undue delay in processing their passport applications.

"Well, the Mahama 24-hour economy is designed to address this problem by ensuring round-the-clock processing of passport applications (24/7), at all passport application centres across the country.

24-hour passport services mean there will be no more queuing at 4 am for basic passport services and no more waiting for 3-6 months for your passport after you have paid for it." Sammy Gyamfi said in a post on X (former Twitter).

He also maintained that the policy would create more jobs for Ghanaians.

"By operating 24/7 in 3 shifts of 8 hours each, more jobs will be created for the unemployed and underemployed at various passport offices in the country. And, citizens will enjoy better delivery of passport services.

Imagine what benefits citizens will get from 24-hour DVLA services, 24-hour port services, and 24-hour Customs Services, among others. Indeed, the TUC was right when it lauded the  #Mahama24HourEconomy as a Game-Changer."
