Assin Central lawmaker, Kennedy Agyapong, has condemned the decision by John Dramani Mahama to legalise the activities of “Okada” when given the nod.
According to Kennedy Agyapong, the proposition by the presidential hopeful is an insult to Ghanaians.
Speaking on Oman FM, Mr. Agyapong wondered why Mr. Mahama will want to legalise something that is not in the interest of Ghanaians.
He argued that it will be better for Mr. Mahama to talk about ideas and interventions that will be in the interest of Ghanaians.
“Why won’t he rather think of something better for the people than legalisation of Okada; does he expect people to graduate from school to engage in Okada business?.
“It is an insult to Ghanaians and I’m surprised people are hailing the decision.”
Former President John Mahama whilst on a tour in the Volta region revealed that his government will legalise the commercial operation of motorbikes when voted into power in 2021.
Mr. Mahama revealed the Okada business has become a source of livelihood for the youth and so a future NDC government will train any youth interested in that venture.
