SSNIT’s pensions manager, Joseph Opoku, was apprehended for using unauthorized number plates.
The driver of a woman who identified herself as a senior staff at the Central Bank was also caught neglecting road markings to get ahead of traffic towards the tunnel.
Per a report by citinewsroom.com, a police official, ASP Simon Tenkuu, noted that it was a crime to use fake documents and act in an indisciplined manner on the road.
The campaign against indiscipline on the roads began in May 2019 and is intended to run until May 2020.
In other news, a 42-year-old carpenter, Mensah Kwami Azaglo, has settled at the premises of the Unity Rural Bank Limited at Ho in the Volta region in a bid to demand his money from the bank.
Information available suggests that for some time now, the bank has been unable to pay him his deposits.
Per a report by the Ghana News Agency, Azaglo explained that the bank has been owing him GH¢46, 249.90 since 2013 and all efforts to get his money have proven futile.
He took the matter to court in May 2019 after he was constantly informed that there was no money to give him.
The court thereafter granted the bank’s application of motion on notice to stay in execution of the debt by a monthly installment.
Per the arrangement, the bank was expected to pay him GHc4000 every month from December 2019 till it cleared the debt.
The bank, however, informed the court that it would pay him GHc5000 from November 2019 as a show of good faith but that is yet to be fulfilled.
