To ease human and vehicular traffic during Ghana’s 66th Independence Day celebration, the Volta Regional Coordinating Council has announced that the use of commercial Auto Rickshaw, commonly known as “Pragya or mahama can do” in the Ho Municipality will be temporarily suspended on Monday, March 6. This move aims to prevent road accidents associated with the use of Okada.
In a statement signed by the Volta Regional Minister, Dr. Archibald Yao Letsa, it was noted that Okada operators are to take note that any route within the municipality to the venue of the anniversary parade – Adaklu-Tsrefe is suspended. The statement also specified some of the routes where Okada operators are allowed to operate up to certain points.
These routes include Ziavi/Skyplus Road up to Scrap junction, Kpenoe to Dabla junction up to Barracks Newtown, Deme to Royal hospital area, Ho Airport to Ho polyclinic, SSNIT Flat Junction to Ho Technical University Nogora Junction, Goshen City to Steven Hotel Area, and Adaklu Tsrefe to the Police Barracks.
The Regional Coordinating Council urged all Okada Operators to comply with the directive, warning that offenders will face legal consequences.
