Even though blood group O is a recessive trait(as we already know that recessive traits are normally supressed) why do majority of the people have the blood group O?

O blood group is a recessive trait but this blood group has maximum gene frequency within the gene pool. So there are more chances that offspring will inherit O blood group gene from the parents. That is why this is the most common blood group that exists in a population.
