Kintampo (B/A) Nov. 23, GNA - The Kintampo district branch of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) has commended a 21 year- old taxi cab driver, Mr. Paa Wuli for his honesty and faithfulness. The driver last weekend returned a mobile phone left in his vehicle to its owner, Nana Adu Simon, a reporter of the Ghana News Agency. An eyewitness account said Nana Adu and a colleague took the taxi from the main Kintampo lorry station to Emmanuel Congregation Presbyterian Church to cover the annual general meeting of shareholders of Kintampo Rural Bank.

Nana Adu realized on arrival at the church that he had lost his phone and rushed to enquire from the front desk but could not find it. He used a colleague's phone to call his phone to which Mr. Wuli responded and confirmed that he had found the cell phone in his car. Mr. Wuli asked Nana Adu to collect the phone at the station because some people had hired the taxi to the waterfalls and on his return handed over the phone to Nana Adu who had reported the matter to the GPRTU at the station.

Mr. Yak Seidu, Chairman of the Union said "such good and honest behaviour" was expected of drivers, members of the union and the public. He called on other drivers to emulate Mr. Wuli to build a better image for the Kintampo branch of GPRTU.

Meanwhile, the union has decided to honour Mr. Wuli at their annual general meeting at Kintampo this year to boost his morale.
