Commercial motorcycle riders, popularly called Okada, in Twifo-Praso in the Central Region, have urged the next administration of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to ensure that the cost of acquiring a motor riding license is drastically reduced.
While the majority of Okada operators across the country have already declared their support for the NDC in view of the party’s hailed plan to legalize and effectively regulate their operations, they believe that a reduction in the cost for a license would be helpful.
“We trust John Mahama and we know the NDC is caring and will do it for us,” he said, amidst wild jubilation in the hall.
Responding, Prof Opoku-Agyemang assured the operators of total assistance to regulate and facilitate their work to enhance their livelihood.
“You are all Ghanaians, and you deserve better so that you can contribute more meaningfully to the economy,”‘ she said.
The running mate reiterated the NDC’s commitment to support the okada business to thrive in a more regulated and safe environment, assuring that the interests of the operators would be protected.
