MMT clash: Appoint competent Director – Drivers to Akufo-Addo

Drivers of the Metro Mass Transit(MMT) in Kumasi have appealed to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to appoint a competent and energetic Director.

The MMT yard was in turmoil yesterday after rival supporters of two persons who claim to have been appointed to head the state transport company nearly clashed.

The irate supporters had gathered at the Bantama-Abrepo junction office of the MMT for a face-off when the police timeously arrived to ensure law and order.

One of the faction’s action was to disallow Nicholas Oduro, who claims to have been appointed by President Akufo Addo from holding himself as Director of Ashanti Regional branch of the Metro Mass Transit.

Abusua FM’s Osei Kwadwo visited the place Friday morning and reported that calm has returned to the MMT yard, after Thursday’s incident.

Police Personnel, according to reports are still detailed at the place to forestall the breach of peace.

One Metro Mass driver who spoke to Osei Kwadwo appealed to government to intervene in the matter and appoint a competent director as new Head of company.

“We are ready to work with any director who will be appointed by the President but we need competent director to take over affairs as a Depot Manager” he said.
