Former National Secretary, of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Murtala Mohammed, says he does not understand why any serious political party will legalise Okada business.

In his opinion, the menace of Okada in Ghana is as a result of joblessness in the country and poor traffic and transport system in Ghana.

According to him, “What many people don’t know about this Okada is that the motorcycle is not for the riders but some faceless petty-bourgeois hiding in a government parastatal like the police, military ministries and cooperate institutions.”

He said: “If we sit aloof to allow the legitimization of Okada, we shall soon legitimize the use of Donkeys as means of transport. I say this because every business is driven by profit. If a businessman will not use fuel and can reduce other expenditure like maintenance, why will he not venture into “Donkey Transport System” as a mode of transport?”

On records, the idea to legalize was reechoed by former President John Mahama. According to him, his government will legalise Okada when voted into power in 2021.

To Mahama’s best knowledge, the commercial operation of motorbikes or Okada business has become a means of sustenance for young people who are unemployed.
