Ghana’s former president John Mahama has promised to build a modern bus terminal at a trading hub – Kaneshie – if he returns to power.
Speaking during a visit to drivers and traders to caution them against recklessness on the roads ahead of the Easter celebrations, Mr. Mahama, who is presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), commended the management of the market for maintaining it.
Mr. Mahama used his visits to advocate for an accident-free Easter, advicing and encouraging the drivers to take greater responsibility for the safe arrival of their passengers and themselves at their destinations.
“We must all be ambassadors to reduce road accidents this Easter period. We are all stakeholders and must come together to reduce most of these road crashes,” the former president emphasized.
While noting that various factors can account for road accidents, he stressed the need for the GPRTU to continue their safe driving campaigns in order to help reduce road accidents.
He also announced during an interaction with drivers at the Neoplan station at the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange that the next NDC government will abolish the luxury vehicles tax if government fails to scrap it before 2020.
