Mahama throws major campaign promise in doubt after angrily sacking okada riders from NDC rally


In a video going viral, former President John Mahama is seen sacking some okada riders at an NDC rally for making noise with their motor bikes.

The NDC flag bearer who as part of his campaign tour in Nyankpala in the Tolon Constituency of the Northern Region, was sharing his campaign message when the riders were displaying close to venue.

The angry looking John Mahama quickly turned to the Okada riders and in his attempt to sack them over their unnecessary noise was heard saying in Dagbani;

“Will these boys give us some peace? Move away and do your display and let us finish up with our rally”.

This comes days after the Ex-president was seen sacking a man from an NDC rally in Suhum for blowing a vuvuzela at a similar fashion.

His recent conduct in Nyankpala calls into the question the sincerity of the NDC’s promise to legalise Okada if Ghanaians give them the nod to come back to power.

 The law to ban okada business was enacted in 2012 under the administration of John Mahama and his commitment to lift this ban when given political power is in serious doubt.
