The out-going Consular General of the Ghana Mission in New York, Mr. Joseph Ngminebayihi has expressed his profound gratitude to the executives and members of the Ghanaian Taxi Drivers Association - INC, USA as he was over the weekend honoured by them. Mr. Joseph Ngminebayihi's tenure of office comes to an end on the 30 th of November.
He was presented with a plaque by the chairman of the association, Mr. Kwaku Duah, during the ceremony held in his office, as the executives paid a courtesy call on him in his office to wish him Godspeed in his future endeavours.
The outgoing consul general, in his remarks, admitted that the Taxi drivers association of New York was one of the biggest and best organized associations he had ever interacted with and called on all members to do everything possible to maintain this positive outlook and strive to make it better than it presently was.
He urged members to allow unity, respect and the fear of God to be their guiding principles. These he believed will make the association stand out as an object of emulation by other societies in and around the state of New York.
He further called on members to respect the laws of the United States while at the same time showing dedication, commitment, and patience to efforts to make the association unique. He tasked the association's members to eschew negative activities that will tend to tarnish the good works the association had done since its establishment.
