Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Ghana’s Vice President, has given a taxi driver GH20,000 (N1,103,000) as a token of his kindness for his honesty.
Kwesi Ackon, the driver, returned GH8,400 (N440,000) to a passenger who had forgotten his money in the taxi.
The moment Kwesi handed the money to the rightful owner is captured in a viral video on social media.
According to Fourth Estate, after Ghanaian journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni, who originally shared the post, urged people to do more, the vice-president celebrated the cab driver by giving him money.
Kwesi also received GH2,500 (N138,000) from two unnamed donors in addition to the GH20,000 (N1,103,000) (N1.2 million).
