Akufo-Addo uses private car; 200 State cars missing


President Nana Akufo-Addo is still using his private Land Cruiser a month after being sworn into office, the communications director at the Presidency has confirmed.

According to Eugene Arhin, the president still resorts to the vehicle he used during the 2016 campaign for travels outside Accra.

Mr. Arhin said the saloon car being used by Nana Akufo-Addo within Greater Accra is a 2007 BMW model which was purchased during the Ghana@50 celebrations.

He noted that over 200 official vehicles are missing from the state pool at the Flagstaff House.

“As I speak to you there is only one vehicle he has been using during his rounds in Accra. You definitely have to ask yourself where are all the vehicles. President Akufo-Addo is currently using a 2007 BMW model purchased by the state during the Ghana @50 celebrations… That is what he is using. So where are the cars?” Mr. Arhin told Naa Dedei Tettey on Starr Today Tuesday.

He added: “Just this last week Saturday, the president had to use his private Land Cruiser for an official duty in Kyebi. That is the same Land Cruiser he used during the campaign time.”

The government has set up a taskforce to retrieve state properties in the hands of former government officials.
