The Taxi driver who returned a passenger’s GH¢8,000 missing money has been rewarded by the Vice-President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia for his honesty.
The man who has been identified as Kwesi Ackon received an amount of GH¢20,000 from the office of the Vice President after a wide search for him.
The man went viral after a video of him surfaced on social media, handing over a missing GH¢ 8,000 which belonged to one market woman who sells fish at the Mallam Atta Market in Accra.
