Okada Riders Increase Fares By 100% Over Emission Tax Implementation

  1. The Okada Riders Association has threatened to increase their fares  by 100 percent in response to the government’s implementation of an annual emission tax of GHS100.

In line with this decision, the Association has outlined new fare rates, with goods delivery now costing GHS50 and a ride from Accra to Kasoa priced at GHS150.

The announcement was made by the National Coordinator of the Association, Mr Kojo Wadja, during an interview with NewsGhanaOnline.

Mr Wadja disclosed that the cost of motorbike registration for Okada riders is approximately GHS1000, and there has been a hike in motorbike insurance from GHS100 to GHS250.

Stating his concerns, Mr Wadja revealed that “the increased financial burden has led to a reluctance among many riders to register their motorbikes and we are not happy with the Emission Levy Bill at all that’s why we have increased our rates by 100%”.
