Member of Parliament for Akim Oda, Alexander Akwasi Acquah has fulfilled his promise to drivers in Akim Oda as he gave out ten taxis to the GPRTU chairman in the constituency under a work – pay, and own agreement.

As part of ensuring that his work in the constituency becomes easy for him whiles he focuses on his legislative work, he set up Committees in the Constituency to address various sectors of need of his constituency.

The Finance Committee on Monday, April 22, 2024, presented ten taxis out of the thirty that was promised the drivers who appealed to the MP to provide them with one under the aforementioned arrangement.

Hon Alexander Akwasi Acquah in an interview pointed out that he is doing this to empower his constituents and help them to own their own taxi. He urged the drivers to work hard and pay on time adding that per the arrangement within two months they would be able to gather funds and buy different set for others who have shown keen interest.

According to him, the interesting thing about the agreement is that the cars are sold to the drivers at the amount with which the vehicles were purchased unlike the typical market situation where others double or triple the prices making it difficult to pay back. More so, no collateral is needed under this arrangement.

He further urged the Finance Committee to be on the lookout to ensure those who currently have the vehicle pay on time to ensure others also benefit.
