This is an initiative taken by Old Mutual Ghana, a Life insurance and Pension trust company in Ghana, that provides its customers with great pension plans. And seeks to improve their entire financial objective.
Free trotro rides with complimentary WiFi connections was a way they could give back to the community for being very supportive of their venture. These mini buses grant unlimited access to all individuals within Accra. The routes on which this can be located and boarded are from:
Kasoa to Kwame Nkrumah circle
Ashiaman to Kwame Nkrumah circle
And Adenta to Kwame Nkrumah circle
Active riders on social media will get a chance to be part of the snap and post and win the competition. This competition is in two folds; the first part is Spot my troski where individuals who aren’t on board are required to take pictures of the branded Minibusses and post on Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #spotmytroski. The next challenge is trotro selfie where individuals take selfies int the branded minibus and post on Twitter and Facebook with the hash tag #troskiselfie.
