One of the winners of PK award
Peckham West Enterprises of 92 Sanders Street have awarded two Kekeh riders Abu Bakarr Kanu and Samuel Fornah have emerged as the winners of this month’s monthly award.
Both riders are working for Peckham Enterprises and the boss of the company Patrick John says this is an incentive to keep his drivers discipline always.
He said this is the first Kekeh transport company in the country and he is doing these awards to make sure that the drivers take their job seriously and work towards making Sierra Leone a better place.
Abu Bakarr Kanu was one of the winners and was presented the ‘Peckham West Rider of the month and Samuel Fornah was awarded the Peckham West Special award.”
Mr John said Peckham West Enterprise is a company with a fleet of kekehs plying the streets of Freetown and they have been serving the city with diligence since its inception.
He said some the criteria for the drivers to win the awards include punctuality, paying rent regularly and on time, parking on time, promoting the company positively, treating passengers politely, fantastic attendance record at work and general excellence.
When asked how he felt about winning the award, Samuel Fornah said he is happy and he believes it is a motivating factor for himself and others working for the company.
“I don’t know any other company that does what Peckham West has done. We get an additional day’s money as prize, so it is great news for me and those that will be winning in the future. We are very happy with the company and we hope they will continue to support us as they have created employment for many of us.”
The boss of Peckham West said he respects the riders and has told them that this is their job and they must behave as workers and they must also respect the passengers that give them the money they take home to their families.
He said he will continue to award the best riders so that they too in turn will continue to be good riders.
