Mahama highlighted commitments such as downsizing the government, eliminating ex-gratia, and abandoning the E-levy.

Addressing the 2024 NDC policy dialogue in Peduase in the Eastern Region on Friday, February 23, 2024, Mahama said "I mean business on the promises I have made and intend to keep them."

He asserted that these initiatives could significantly enhance the country's fortunes, particularly its economic landscape.

"Since 2021, I have outlined over 60 different policy proposals, carefully curated to restore our economy and national life in general, to a much better state," he added.
