Dr Mary Awusi, Deputy Director of Inter-Party and Civil Society Relations of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has assured motor riders, simply known as okada boys, that their operations would soon be legalised.

This assurance was made during a crucial meeting with the Motor Riders Association of Ghana, emphasising the party's dedication to addressing their concerns.

Dr Awusi reaffirmed former President John Mahama's promise to legalise the operations of okada, including the introduction of unique number plates.

The NDC will legalise the operations of Okada, Dr Awusi noted. She emphasised this move is aimed at eliminating the intimidation and harassment riders often face at the hands of officers of the Ghana Police Service. 

Dr Awusi also highlighted the role of the newly created Inter-Party and Civil Society Relations Directorate.

"This directorate was established to gather input from organisations, ensuring that our policies are informed by the needs and perspectives of those directly affected," she explained.
