Entertainment
Henry Quartey (White) and TT

The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Mr Henry Quartey, has directed that GHS1,500 of his parliamentary salary be given to veteran actor Samuel Adjeteyfio till the end of his tenure in the 8th Parliament.

This gesture is in response to a call by the Ga Dangme Youth Association, led by its President, Nii Ayaafio Tetteh II, to the Minister, for financial support for Mr Adjeteyfio.

The veteran actor shot to fame with the famous TV series dubbed Taxi Driver, where he played the lead role of a taxi driver known as TT.

Vice-president Mahamudu Bawumia recently supported TT with GHS50,000 for his rent when a viral video of him crying for help got to his attention.

TT, apart from Taxi Driver, also featured in a number of movies and TV series.

Below is the letter of affirmation by the Regional Minister:
