Social media users are reacting to a video circulating about former president John Dramani Mahama stopping his convoy to help in an accident scene involving a motorbike, popularly known as okada.
This video has generated a lot of reactions from Ghanaians on social media. According to most of them, former president Mahama should be the last person to attend to an okada accident because he is the person who made it a campaign message and motivated the youth to go into okada business. Others have also asked why he is now calling for an ambulance, as he did not make any efforts to procure any quality ambulances for the country when he was president.
It can be recalled that the former president John Dramani Mahama promised in the 2020 general elections to legalize the okada business if Ghanaians voted for him. It can also be recalled that when he was president, his government decided to procure some ambulances for the country but ended up buying low quality sprinter buses. This was a huge financial loss to the state.
