Dr. Rashid Kwesi Etuaful offers 80 cars and 230 licenses to drivers in Ajumako Enyan Essiam Constituency.
The NPP parliamentary candidate for Ajumako Enyan Essiam Constituency since his election to lead the New Patriotic Party in late 2019 has given 80 taxis to drivers in his Constituency. Some of the beneficiaries pay as low as GHC 2,000.00 to get one of the work and pay cars. In an estimation, the daily bread of some 320 people has been provided through this initiative.
The Vision of the politician is to ensure poverty is reduced if not totally eradicated.
Driving without a license breaches traffic regulations in our country. Dr. Rashid again, has assisted more than 200 drivers who had cars but no licenses to drive.
He believes that teaching his constituents how to fish will provide them sure ways to survive all times than to fling a coin at them.
“Empowering people goes beyond giving them a cedi or two, a leader must look at a better alternative that will help his people overcome financial difficulties at any point in time. These work and pay cars,I believe would support quite a number of people and relief them of financial constraints. I will continue to build the youth and position them well so that in the coming days, they could contribute to the needed development of their various communities.”
“Driving without a license is illegal, my outfit would not end here with only 230 licenses,more people will be supported to acquire some to have comfort while on the road. Most accidents occur on our roads these days because unlicensed drivers speed to circumvent the law, to escape police officers on duty”
He told a session of the beneficiaries who paid a courtesy call to his office on Tuesday to be hardworking in order to pay fully for the cars even earlier than scheduled to be car owners. The Parliamentary candidate cautioned them against drinking and driving and the need for regular maintenance of their cars and again to ensure that they save towards their future.
According to the PC, by the close of 2020 , one hundred (100) cars from his outfit would have been given to the people of Ajumako Enyan Essiam Constituency for use.
