Okada riders in Accra stormed the premises of Class FM to meet the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama after his manifesto promise to legalize their operations.
The former president this morning granted an interview on Accra-based radio station Class FM.
Members of the Okada Riders Association of Ghana stormed Class FM to meet their ‘guardian angel’.
During NDC’s manifesto launch, John Mahama said his government was going to legalize the use of okada when voted into power in 2021. Mr. Mahama was of the belief that Okada has created jobs for many young people and was therefore necessary to take through the necessary protocols to ensure it legalization.
Okada has come to stay and nothing can be done about that and the best way is to legalize and regulate okada operations to mitigate the danger it poses to road users. He said during the NDC’s manifesto launch at UDS in Accra.
Mr. Mahama’s interview comes ahead of the NDC’s yet to be held town hall meeting slated for Tuesday, September 15, 2020, at Kumasi following the launch of their 2020 manifesto last week.
Several okada riders associations have welcomed the NDC flagbearer’s legalization pledge in good faith and have promised to vote for the former president to come back to power come 2020 elections.
