The joy of a fish seller at Mallam Atta Market in Accra when a taxi driver, Kwesi Ackon returned her lost money worth GH8,400 cannot be defined.
As earlier reported by Dklassgh.com, a God-fearing taxi driver found the money in his car after he dropped off the woman. He then decided to return it to her and he has since won the hearts of many.
After taxi driver’s honesty went viral, the Editor-in-Chief of The Fourth Estate, Manasseh Azure Awuni, suggested on Facebook that something be done to reward the taxi driver beyond words of appreciation.
A number of people reacted to the Facebook post and reached out, willing to help.
Among them was Vice President Dr Bawumia, who donated GH¢20,000 to reward Mr. Ackon for his honesty and exemplary show of integrity.
Manasseh presented an additional GH¢2,500 from two other unnamed donors, making the total of GH¢22,500.
Current Vodafone artist of the year, KiDi has also joined the list and dashed him a total sum of GH¢5000 to add to his business.
It pays to be honest, they say. But Kwesi Ackon did not believe it can be that literal.
