Does that sound like a good logic to you? The argument against the implementation is very fragile” He stressed on his question.


However, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) earlier said it is very risky for any government to condier the legalization of Okada in the country. They debated that Ghanaians deserve a better paying and sustainable jobs that Okada, hes the idea should be thrown away.
