The 2020 Campaign Manager of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Prof Joshua Alabi has stated that the benefit okada business provides for the economy outweighs the few negativity people associates it with.
“Online shopping is facilitated by Okada delivery systems. In an era of Covid-19 and the new normal, Okada becomes more relevant than ever. Okada is, therefore, a part of the financial ecosystem of Ghana as well as trade support,” he said.
According to him, the NDC sees the okada rider as part of a stronger economy and the party won’t leave them behind in their quest to create jobs for Ghanaians.
“Okada supports the Ghanaian economy in diverse ways. It serves as a source of direct employment to the riders, to providing livelihoods to their families and dependents. It also supports indigenous trade and commence by providing logistical support for deliveries,” Professor Alabi said.
