The taxi driver, whose exploits led to the arrest of two armed robbers in Cantonments in January, has received a fully furnished two-bedroom house in fulfilment of a government promise.
President John Dramani Mahama had promised to provide the driver full accommodation for crashing his taxi into the motorbike of the robbers, who had attacked a staff of Koala Supermarket in a drive-by crime.
On Tuesday, March 8, the Minister of Water Resources, Works and Housing, Kwaku Agyemang-Mensah, presented keys to the house to Frank Ade.
“The nation is very grateful to this gentleman,” Mr Agyemang-Mensah said.
“This should encourage all Ghanaians to help in maintaining law and order.”
He said maintenance of law and order is not an exclusive preserve of the police.
“As good citizens, all of us must be involved in maintaining law and order.”
The taxi driver, who won the praise of Former President Jerry John Rawlings, expressed gratitude to Ghanaians for praising him over the incident.
“God bless them all.”
Government has assured of Mr Ade’s security.
He has already received a brand new car from management of Koala Supermarket while the police have also replaced his taxi.
