- Rawlings is excited a taxi driver is practising environmental hygiene
- He charged all Ghanaians to brighten the little corners they find themselves by keeping the environment clean as Easter approaches
A man driving a taxi with registration number GW 8963-16, has been praised by former president Jerry John Rawlings for ensuring good environmental hygiene.
The former president in a series of tweets commended the cab driver for not littering. He also charged Ghanaians to ensure total cleanliness at all times.
“I congratulate the driver of a KIA Picanto taxi with registration number GW 8963-16. I was about three vehicles behind him at a traffic light junction this morning when I saw him squeeze water out a sachet bag. It felt good when he folded the empty bag...
“…afterwards and placed it back in his car. We will like to see more of that by drivers and especially passengers. Let's do a little cleaning up as the crucifixion of Christ approaches,” he tweeted.
The action of the driver is a very rare sight especially in the capital where indiscriminate disposal of the wrapper of candies, paper, polythene bags, sachet water rubber has become a routine.
Passengers and drivers alike, sometimes throw all sorts of things out of moving vehicles, a despicable phenomenon which has been widely condemned.
