Press Statement: Return of Govt Vehiles
Some former officials of the previous administration have returned their duty post vehicles.
A statement from the Ministry of Information said former Andrew Awuni, Press Secretary to President Kufuor and former Minister for Works and Housing, Alhaji Boniface Saddique Abubakar have as at 2pm today Thursday April 30, 2009 returned their vehicles.
The return of the vehicles follows Wednesday’s ultimatum to all former officials to return vehicle that were being kept illegally.
Government also wishes to acknowledge that a number of former officials including Nii Ayitey Boafo (a former Special Aide to the President Kufuor), George Hikah Banson (former Upper West Regional Minister) and Professor George Hagan (of the National Commission on Culture) have been in touch to discuss the appropriate modalities for regularising their purchase or return of their vehicles.
It is government’s hope that all others who are still in illegal possession of State vehicles would follow the good example of their colleagues and return them without delay.
