The National Concerned Drivers Association of Ghana has threatened to vote against the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) if he fails to cancel his promise to legalise the operations of Okada riders across the country.Former President John Dramani Mahama made the promise during his campaign tours.
It has also been captured in the party’s 2020 manifesto.
However, the National Concerned Drivers Association of Ghana has registered its displeasure about it.
In a statement issued by the association and co-signed by its National Secretary Nana Owiredu, Public Relations Officer (PRO) David Agboado and National Chairman Paa Willie, the group said it had “carefully studied the manifesto of the National Democratic Congresson the legalisation of Okada” and demanded that NDC take “a second look at their manifesto promise of the legalisation of Okada” in the country.
According to the association, “Okada legalisation is a threat to human livelihoods” as “the legalisation will not only endanger lives but rather create havoc and mayhem on the roads for both commercial and private drivers.”
