Dr. Benjamin Otchere-Ankrah, a Central University Lecturer, has rained praises on the taxi driver who went viral on Wednesday for returning missing money to its owner.
The taxi driver, Kwesi Ackoh, had found the money lying in his car and quickly located a trader who boarded the taxi to give back her money.
The sum of GHc 8,400 was safely delivered into the hands of the trader who couldn’t help but to tearfully bless the driver as the missing money had caused her to lose sleep the eve of the taxi driver’s kind gesture.
Following a viral video that showed the driver’s selfless act, he has been splashed with gifts and money from the public.
Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia donated an amount of GHc 20,000 to him while Chief Executive Officer of Salt Media, Charles Ohene Frimpong and musician Kidi also gifted the driver GHc 7,800 and GHc 5,000 respectively.
More gifts have been trickling in for the taxi driver over his godly act.
Touching on this incident, Dr. Otchere-Ankrah stressed the driver well deserves the public magnanimity towards him noting his act has proven that indeed “good people still exist”.
He urged all Ghanaians to learn lessons from him.
One lesson learned, as Dr. Otchere-Ankrah commended the driver on Peace FM’s “Kokrokoo” programme, is that people should be kind and also not to take things that don’t belong to them.
“There are still good people in the world…I’m much encouraged that we shouldn’t be discouraged; good people still exist,” he emphasized.
