''I make money as a bus driver. I can say that I've earned over £45,000 within a year (from April to April),'' Bamfo said.
Bamfo appeals to the Ghana government
The senior bus driver claimed that unlike Ghana, where drivers barely train after earning their license, the UK system obliged him to attend refresher courses or a week of training every five years.
To save lives, Bamfo urged the Government of Ghana to build training centres to equip drivers with refresher training courses after receiving their licence.
