The Church of Pentecost General Headquarters in Accra, Ghana, employs Kwesi Ackon, a 36-year-old honest cab driver who has gained worldwide fame for returning a sizable sum of money found in his vehicle to its owner.
Ackon expressed his sincere gratitude and appreciation to God and the church’s leadership, particularly the Chairman, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, and the General Secretary, Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, on his first day of work on Thursday, June 16, 2022. Ackon could not contain his happiness over the job offer.
He believed that working in the church’s administrative center would strengthen his Christian ideals and faith.
A letter of employment dated June 15, 2022, and signed by the Human Resource Manager, Elder Samuel Mantey Addo, stated: “The Church of Pentecost Headquarters hereby offers you employment as Driver Grade II…” Kwesi Ackon also thanked many Ghanaians who donated various sums of money and items to him when the news about the issue broke out. The news of Kwesi Ackon went viral a few weeks ago after he returned an amount of GHS 8,400.00 he found at the back of his car to the owner.
He picked the trader, an old fishmonger, from the Mallam Atta Market in Accra to her residence at Teshie on Easter Saturday. The old woman, who had no hope of retrieving the said money, wept profusely and invoked the blessings of God upon Kwesi Ackon when he voluntarily traced her at her residence on Easter Sunday to return the money to her.
The deed of Kwesi Ackon, which was caught on camera, went viral, and as a result, His Excellency Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the Vice President of the Republic, saw it and gave him GHS 20,000.00. He has now received donations from a number of organizations and people who were moved by the gesture, including Rev. Lawrence Tetteh who gave him a brand-new Daewoo Matrix.
The employment offer he received from The Church of Pentecost Headquarters is the cherry on top.
