President Akufo-Addo has promised to end corruption and wastage

Ghana’s government is trying to track down 208 vehicles missing from the fleet at the president’s office, a spokesman for new President Nana Akufo-Addo has said.

An audit, carried out after Mr Akufo-Addo’s government took office last month, showed that vehicles were missing, Eugene Arhin said.

He added that officials could only find:

  • 74 of the presidency’s 196 Toyota Land Cruisers
  • 20 of the 73 Toyota Land Cruiser Prados
  • 11 of the 24 Mercedes’
  • two of the 28 Toyota Avalons
  • two of the six BMWs.

Ex-communication minister Omane Boamah said the allegation was false and a “convenient way for the new government to justify the purchase of new vehicles”.

Mr Akufo-Addo defeated then-President John Mahama in elections in December.
