I’ll give you electric bikes on hire-purchase basis – Mahama promises okada riders

Former President John Mahama has promised to give okada riders electric motorbikes on a hire-purchase basis should he win the 2024 presidential election.

He told the riders in Ashaiman, Greater Accra, recently: “The good news is that I have spoken with two companies. They are going to open an assembling plant for electric motorbikes that will be given out on hire purchase, work-and-pay, then you will pay in bits.” 

“Such motors don’t consume petrol. The battery will be charged down,” Mr Mahama noted.

He said: “When you ride and your battery falls, you can visit the exchange battery centre and then the battery will be taken out and replaced with a new one. You pay a small fee and then you continue with your work.”

Mr Mahama has always supported the okada business and promised to legalise it if he returns to office.

“We want your support in ensuring the law works. You have to punish your members who will go contrary to the law. Your safety will be the number one thing. You will observe road instructions at all times. Your work is very important,” he stressed.

“You will be asked to wear reflective jackets so that people will see you from far. Many motorbikers are thieves, so, we will register all of you to sniff out the thieves,” Mr Mahama added.
