A Police officer in Madina in Accra is winning plaudits from Ghanaians online, after he was photographed directing traffic in the driving rain in Accra.
A torrential downpour hit parts of the capital Thursday afternoon, and as usual, it’s difficult to see traffic officers on duty during such a time; but this officer braved the elements to do his job.
A user uploaded the photos online, praising the officer for the sacrifice he was making. Several commenter’s on the post echoed those sentiments, praising the officer and bemoaning the fact that there are few officers willing to do that.
It’s more a reflection of the broken state of things in Ghana than anything else, what with broken down traffic lights and an institutionalised laissez-faire approach towards public sector jobs- but this officer deserves kudos for doing what few are willing to do.
