Okada riders in the country are calling on the government to ease the restrictions imposed on them during the lock-down.
During the lock-down, President Nana-Akufo Addo announced the restriction in Greater Accra, Kumasi and some parts of the country which does not restrict the movement of commercial vehicles but rather compels them to reduce the number of passengers as they ensure that the social distancing protocols are well obeyed.
No motor rider according to the directives can carry another person, meaning commercial motorbikes must not work.
In an interview with Dofopa FM, some Okada riders said since the last update of the President’s address which he lifted the ban on commercial vehicles, the police service has been on their necks.
They are therefore appealing to the government and authorities to ease the restrictions on them so they can fully operate by adhering to all the safety protocols by the government.
