Speaking in an interview with Benjamin Akakpo on the Executive Breakfast Show (EBS) on Class91.3FM on Thursday, 9 January 2020, Alhaji Tijani, who plies his business at Ashaiman in the Greater Accra Region, described the Okada business as a lucrative one because it enables him to feed his large family of over 20 people.

“I’ve four wives, 16 children. Formerly, I was a scrap dealer… and everything was not going [on well]; if I didn’t join the Okada [business], I cannot feed them [family].

“My family knows that I’m an Okada rider. I even have one adopted daughter at Legon, I visit her always with my Okada and her friends laugh at her that her father is an Okada man but I know what I’m getting, I know what I’m fetching, Okada is a good business”, he told Benjamin Akakpo.

According to Alhaji Tijani, Sundays are the best days for the Okada business.

Alhaji Tijani has been an Okada rider for seven years and makes GHS1,000 a month from it.

Ghana’s Road Traffic Regulations 2012 (L.I 2180) prohibit the usage of tricycles and motorbikes for commercial purposes.
