Former President John Dramani Mahama has begun a road safety campaign ahead of the Easter festivities, through which he is sensitising drivers of the need to curb road accidents.
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.
While noting that various factors can account for road accidents, he emphasized the need for the GPRTU to continue their safe driving campaigns in order to help reduce road accidents.
At the Kaneshie lorry park, President Mahama promised the local GPRTU executives that his government will work with them to reconstruct a modern Kaneshie bus terminal.
He also announced during an interaction with drivers at the Neoplan station at the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange that the next National Democratic Congress (NDC) government will abolish the luxury vehicles tax if government fails to scrap it before 2020.
