Former national security coordinator Brigadier-General Joseph Nunoo-Mensah (retd) has raised concerns over claims that some cars at the presidency have not been unaccounted for.
According to him, there is no justification for ex-public servants to keep government property.
The presidency has revealed that there are 208 cars unaccounted for after they took inventory of state vehicles at the presidency since the New Patriotic Party government assumed office on January 7, 2017.
Some officials in the former National Democratic Congress (NDC) government say they purchased some of the state vehicles listed as missing by the new government.
In the midst of the missing vehicles controversy, the Chief of Staff has mandated a task-force to retrieve state vehicles illegally being held on by ex-public officials.
The agencies represented on this task force are the Ghana Police Service, the Ghana Revenue Authority (Customs Division) the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA), and the office of the President Conversely, Brigadier Joseph Nunoo-Mensah says it is needless to form a task force but rather the transition team must urgently look into the issue to ascertain the right number of missing vehicles, and who those cars were entrusted into care.
Nonetheless, Brigadier Joseph Nunoo-Mensah says keeping public vehicles while out of government is not acceptable.
