Member of Parliament for Assin North, Kennedy Agyapong, in an interview on a TV show has expressed his displeasure regarding ex-president Mahama’s promise to legalize okada.
On Monday, September 7, 2020, ex-president Mahama ,together with several National Democratic Congress (NDC) party executives, unveiled the party’s manifesto ahead of the December elections.
During the campaign, he pledged to improve the livelihoods of Ghanaians through job creation, extend free shs to private schools in undeserved/deprived areas, absorb 50% of tertiary school fees, extend maternity leave to four months and introduce a paternity leave of seven days, legalize and regulate the okada business among others.
The honourable member said that the youth are into the okada business because there are no alternatives. Hence, for ex-president Mahama to use the okada business as a venture for job sustenance means he is a failure.
