No Gov’t official has even called to thank me – Taxi Driver Who Saved 17 Lives In The Collapsed Church Building
A taxi driver based in Akyem Batabi known as “Côte d’Ivoire” who rescued 17 lives in the church collapsed building has expressed his disappointment in the Ghana Armed Forces.
Recall, after the news went widespread that his rare effort helped save some 17 people trapped in the church building, the Ghana Army decided to honour him with a job.
It is yet to be established what role/ unit he has been appointed.
But speaking to Captain Smart on Angel FM, he said categorically that no government official has even called to thank him.
He said he was promised to be employed as a civilian engineer in the Ghana Armed Forces but as of now he’s not received any letter of appointment or even a call.
He the stressed that the NADMO boss through the MCE in the community dashed him an amount of Ghc2,000.
