Speaking on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ Morning Show, Pius Enam Hadzide said that the NDC under Mahama did not think of the consequences before coming up with the law to ban the operations of Okada in the country.

“Did they think of the consequences before coming up with that law? What consultation went into the decision to come
