Member of Parliament for Assin Central constituency, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, bared his teeth at former President John Dramani Mahama for saying he would legalise commercial motorbikes, popularly known as Okada.
In a report filed by Pulse.com.gh, Kennedy Agyapong said the promise to legalise Okada after he (Mahama) wins the December polls, reveals how visionless the NDC flagbearer is.
According to him, most of the graduates who by no fault of theirs became Okada riders wouldn’t have opted for that if there were better employment opportunities.
“Some of the people who are into Okada business are graduates, they called me and are even disappointed in Mahama. They told me the decision to legalise Okada business alone tells of how disastrous and visionless Mahama is as a person…,” he said.
He argued that if as a former president, Mahama cannot afford to create jobs but rather legalise Okada, then it is sad and visionless.
Ken Agyapong further opined that Mahama cannot think of better means of providing employment because the NDC does not believe in developing the entrepreneurial spirit of the Ghanaian.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported, flag bearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has assured Ghanaians that when voted back into power, his government will legalise the commercial operation of motorbikes popularly known as Okada.
Mahama said the Okada business has offered a means of employment for the unemployed youth.
He made this known while speaking to the chiefs and people of Kpando in the Volta Region.
