"Ghana Integrity Initiative we are happy because most a times when you hear these things they will ask you where is your evidence so now that we all have the evidence we have to applaud the person who captured the police on the video," he said.
" we are appealing to every Ghanaians to join hands together and capture these things that is going, this is not the first time we have heard the police bribery saga. If you select 10 drivers about 5 or 6 of them are victims," he added.
He emphasised that some drivers suffer much when they go to court so we have to use this police video to ensure that free and fair and equality before the law is prevail.
Mr. Boadi added that if we want to fight the one ghana cedis (GHC1) and ensure proper road safety then the focus should not direct only to the police but the road management and road safety must also be look at.
