'Okada' supports Ghana's economy
Mounting a spirited defence of the party's campaign promise, Professor Joshua Alabi said the 'Okada' business presently supports other sectors of the economy despite it being illegal, including the retail and supply sector. "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 a part of the financial ecosystem of Ghana as well as trade support," he said. "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.
