The Mills administration has so far retrieved ninety nine vehicles from former Ministers and ex-public officials who served under the erstwhile NPP administration, a Deputy Information Minister, James Agyenim Boateng, has told Parliament.

These include 64 Salon cars, 6 Pick-up vehicles, 26 four wheel drive cars, 1 Wagon and 2 buses.

In its first few months in office, the Mills administration used the Bureau of National Investigations to embark on a string of vehicle seizures from former Ministers and state officials who served under the Kufour administration.

The seizures sparked a barrage of criticisms from the opposition, after the BNI strayed into seizing some vehicles which did not belong to the state.

Mr Agyenim Boateng did not give details as to the exact status of the recovered vehicles, except to say that “they are in a pool of vehicles being used by government officials”.

Meanwhile, National Security operatives may soon be on the backs of some former Ministers who served under the erstwhile Kufour administration.

The Government has asked the National Security to intervene to get all former Ministers who are still keeping state vehicles in their care to return them to the state.

Ms. Elizabeth Ohene and Maxwell Kofi Jumah are among a list of such ministers.

In an interview with Citi News, Mr. Agyenim Boateng, mentioned Hon. E.A Owusu Ansah, Hon. Ceceila Dapaah, Hon. Kan Dapaah, Hon. Kwame Osei Prempeh, Hon Mrs Chinery Hesse, among others as those who have returned their vehicles and have been refunded monies they paid for the cars.

Hon. Abubakar Saddique Boniface and Hon. Kojo Adjei Darko are yet to receive their cheques although Mr. Agyenim Boateng says their cheques are ready for collection.
