How Can Okada Creates More Jobs Than NABCO? — Akuffo-Addo Quizzes Mahama, Calls Him Populist



President Akuffo-Addo has for the first time break silence on Mahama’s legalisation of Okada.

According to the president, he wonder why Mahama will make a u-turn on a law he made decriminalising okada business and today claims he is going to legalise it.

To president Akuffo-Addo, Mahama has been inconsistent in his policies.

He further argued that; how can the legalisation of Okada create more jobs than NABCO and Planting for Food and Jobs?

“A law was made during the Mills/Mahama era [which banned okada operations in Ghana]. Today he [John Mahama] has changed his mind. He said he is going to legalise it. How can that provide more jobs than NABCO and Planting for foods and jobs? We have provided over two million jobs with these social intervention initiatives. So how can you say that okada will provide more jobs? It’s just populist. It’s another sign of inconsistency– when you are in power you say one thing and when you are out of power you say something else. It doesn’t help in creating better public discourse,” Akufo-Addo said.

President Akufo-Addo made the remark during an interview with Oman FM on Friday, September 4, 2020.
