As part of efforts to support the ‘Let’s Make Accra Work’ project, automobile giants, Japan Motors, have donated three AG Yamaha-125 motorbikes to the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC).
The motorbikes, which cost $4,000 each, are to help the security department of the GARCC in the discharge of its duties.
At a brief presentation ceremony at the RCC office in Accra, Executive Director of Japan Motors, Nouhad Kalmoni noted that while everybody is trying to do their best to help the world in these pandemic times, his outfit also saw it as an opportunity to make a corporate donation to help the GARCC in their plan to make Accra work.
He further explained that the President has an automobile assembly agenda so hopefully by the end of the year, they will start introducing Navara pickups for the RCC.
The Regional Minister, Henry Quartey stated that the motorbikes have come in very handy, especially as the Regional Coordinating Council are embarking on decongestion exercises and also ensuring that the sanitation situation in the city improves in the region.
He disclosed that the Regional Security Council has met and taken a decision which will soon announce modalities to ensure that all motorbikes are registered and their riders obeying strictly the road traffic regulations as motorists do.
While thanking Japan Motors for the gesture, the Honorable Minister. Quartey asked for more.
