Members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) after the swearing-in of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the President of the country quickly drove away huge numbers of state vehicles that were parked at the seat of government, a former District Chief Executive Officer (DCE) in the Mahama administration has alleged.
According to George Opare-Addo, the Director of Operations at the Presidency, Lord Commey was the one who directed some members of the party’s security, Invincible Forces to drive away the vehicles.
“I say this on authority, on the 7th of January, (2017), after President Akufo-Addo was sworn in, Lord Commey distributed vehicles to the Invincible Forces which they drove out of the Flagstaff House…” he alleged.
Nii Ayikoi Otoo who was the Chairman of the Executive Assets Subcommittee of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Transition Team said government has retrieved 67 vehicles with 234 still missing.
The government has accused the former administration of illegally appropriating state vehicles to its officials after the NDC lost power in the 2016 polls.
