A professional Ghanaian motorbike rider called Mohammed Lary has revealed that he was able to support his family and buy land for himself because of his Okada business.
In an interview with Legit.ng, Mohammed explained that he started the okada business only five years ago but has been able to gather enough funds to cater for his family's needs.
Mohammed, who graduated from senior high school and was unable to further his education due to lack of money, said he started riding okada after his car broke down as he worked as a driver.

In addition to this, Okada has been in the news lately as the flagbearer of the biggest opposition party in Ghana, National Democratic Congress (NDC), promised to legalise the business if he is voted back into power.
Members of the ruling New Patriotic Party in the country, on the other hand, have been bashing the NDC's presidential candidate over the issue.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Madam Hannah Miyebi from Gbaramatu Kingdom in an interview with Legit TV spoke about how she used proceeds from her crayfish business to train her children up to the university level.

When asked if she has gotten any form of support from the government, she said no. She added that she did not even apply for lockdown palliative because she believes the government does not always make good on its promise.
The hardworking woman said she comes to the market between 7:30 am and 8 am every day and closes at 6 pm.
On how the lockdown has affected her business, Hannah said it has reduced patronage as many inter-state borders were locked down.
