Hundreds of Commercial motor riders also known as okada riders invaded the residence of former President John Dramani Mahama to assure him of their support.
In their numbers, the Okada Riders stormed his house in an attempt to catch a glimpse of the erstwhile president while some sought to have a clearance on his campaign messages to legalize okada business in the country.
Some, who could not hide their excitement after seeing Mahama in person, could be heard screaming in the Ga language, “We are behind you, we are behind you.”
John Mahama has consistently touted his intention to make Okada business legal stating that it serves as an employment and a source of income for the many young people who do not have jobs.
Meanwhile, the National President of the Okada Riders Association of Ghana, Michael Kofi Owusu, has welcomed the promise by John Mahama.
According to Kofi Owusu, legalising Okada will greatly help reduce crime and unemployment in the country stating that his association with a population of over 800, 000 will be ready to comply with rules and regulations if the Okada business is legalized.
