Mahama to give motorbikes to Okada Riders on hire purchase

The next administration of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will supply motorbikes to Okada operators on hire purchase terms, former President John Mahama has promised.

Speaking at a mini-durbar of chiefs and people of Kajeji in the Sene East Constituency of the Bono East Region, the NDC flagbearer said after his next government amends the law to legalise the use of motorbikes for commercial passenger services, “we’ll bring in motorbikes and give them out to you on hire purchase terms”.

Mr Mahama first made the promise to legalise Okada a few weeks ago during his tour of the Volta Region.

The promise was captured in the NDC’s 2020 manifesto dubbed: ‘The People’s Manifesto’
