The Ashanti Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mr. Samuel Pyne has said the most Okada operators in the country belong to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and so there is no need to worry about their rants and threats.
Debates about the legalisation of Okada business made waves ibn the media when the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama as part of their campaign messages promised to make the trade legal when he assumes power as president.
The Vice Presidnet, Dr. Mahaudu Bawumia in response to the former president said that there was no way the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was going to legalise Okada business but rather they were going to offer a better alternative to the situation.
The Vice President said that his party was going to give cheaper cars for lease to be sued for public transport instead of adding to the already bad road security situation by legalising Okada.
Speaking in an interview on GTV monitored by My News Ghana, the Ashanti Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mr. Samuel Pyne said that they were not going to get worried over threats of Okada operators to vote against them since the Okada boys are predominantly members of thee opposition party.
“Let me be very honest with you, the majority of the people who use “okada” are already with the NDC so this thing is not going to change anything”, he said.
