Akufo-Addo Has Legalized ‘Weed’, Why Can’t We Legalize Oka – Otukonor Asks

Deputy Secretary and Deputy Campaign Manager of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Peter Boamah Otokunor has passed a derogatory question to the New Patriotic Party on the legalization of Okada issues.

He has expressed his concern in an interview with Pure 95.7 FM, A radio station in Ashanti Region’s capital Kumasi.

In the interview he explained that explained that if President Akufo-Addo and his government has succeeded in legalizing marijuana (weed) in the country for commercial purposes in order to regulate its usage, why can’t the NDC legalize the use of ‘okada’ in the country for commercial purposes to regulate its usage too?

If Akufo-Addo legalized weed, why can’t we legalize okada?…It’s okay for a motor rider to carry an additional passenger (in his private capacity) but you are saying it is wrong for the passenger to give a token to the rider. Does that sound like a good logic to you? The argument against the implementation is very fragile” He stressed on his question.

However, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) earlier said it is very risky for any government to condier the legalization of Okada in the country. They debated that Ghanaians deserve a better paying and sustainable jobs that Okada, hes the idea should be thrown away.

But, later on, as some Ghanaians, especially those already in the Okada buinsess show interest in the idea, the NPP bounced back and decided to implement the NDC conceived manifesto message.
