Taxi drivers, wives root for Akufo-Addo

Taxi drivers and their wives in the Birim Central Municipality have formed an association, dubbed “Taxi drivers and wives for Nana Addo,” to campaign effectively for the success of Nana Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the upcoming general election.

At a meeting with the Member of Parliament (MP) for Oda, Mr William Agyapong Quaittoo, at Oda last Wednesday, members of the association vowed to work tirelessly for Nana Akufo-Addo to secure 80 per cent of the valid votes cast in the Oda Constituency in the November 7, 2016 general election.

The coordinator of the association, Mr Kwasi Effah (aka Obi Man So), said the taxi drivers would convince passengers who boarded their vehicles to cast their votes for Nana Akufo-Addo and Mr Quaittoo.

He stressed that they and their wives would also conduct house-to-house campaigns during their free time for Nana Akufo-Addo and Mr Quaittoo.

According to Mr Effah, they formed the association to vote President John Mahama and the NDC government out because of the economic hardships they were facing.

He cited some of the hardships as outrageous electricity tariffs; indiscriminate increases in fuel prices; and high cost of vehicle spare parts, vehicle insurance and road worthiness certificates.

Mr Effah said he was confident that when Nana Akufo-Addo was elected as President, he would reduce the high electricity bills, the numerous taxes and fuel cost to bring lasting relief to them.

He also promised that the drivers would provide free transport for the NPP executive on the election day for them to monitor the polls.

Mr Quaittoo praised members of the association for voluntarily coming together to help Nana Akufo-Addo and himself.

He promised to give every assistance they would need to enhance their campaigns.
