You Can Swap Your Okada For New Cars – Bawumia



Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has noted that government has no plans to legalise the operations of okada, however, provide better alternatives with less risk than riding okada.

Speaking as the Guest Speaker at the joint launch of a strategic collaboration between Volkswagen and BlackIvy for the production of affordable homes and affordable cars for the Ghanaian people, Dr Bawumia noted that the Akufo Addo led government will provide better options to Okada riders to lease-to-own vehicles if they choose to, and, therefore, the government will not legalise their operations.

According to him, the introduction of national identity cards along with the implementation of the digital property address system, the mobile money interoperability and the universal QR Code, will all allow the development of a credit system with credit reference agencies to make the proposal work.

“Every life matters and we will continue to ensure that safe, affordable means of transportation and livelihood are provided for every Ghanaian,” Dr Bawumia said.
