A taxi driver has reinforced the belief that there are still good people among the living after he returned a new iPhone 7 Plus belonging to a lady, who left it in his car.
Alex Boakye, a taxi driver, who drives a Toyota Corolla with registration number GX-3151-14, has done what probably many taxi drivers in Accra and other parts of the country won't do, when he returned a new iPhone 7 Plus belonging to a Multimedia staff, Ewurabena after the phone fell in the car on Monday, June 17, 2019.
When a call was put through to locate the phone, Alex Boakye graciously picked the phone and assured the owner that it would be returned and even gave his personal number as a sign of commitment when the iPhone 7 Plus battery run down.
“He was called and answered the call and gave us his own telephone number. He was then at Nsawam so he brought the phone late in the night,” Ewurabena, the phone owner recounted.
Alex Boateng disclosed that he has never kept a customer’s property left in his car since he started driving.
“I do not know the reason why I shouldn’t return things left in my car. Even last weekend, a woman left her phone and I drove miles to deliver to her. I am a very honest man who is very truthful because I have children and I need to show them good values like this,” he said.
He advised his fellow taxi drivers to emulate his example so their transport profession would earn the respect of society.
