Former Chief of Defence Staff, Brigadier General Joseph Nunoo-Mensah has expressed worry over why some former public officials are still in possession of ‘expensive’ state vehicles.

According to him he was very sad when he heard about the 'missing' cars in the news.

In an interview with Neat FM, he said if these people had proper training from their homes they wouldn’t take what does not belong to them.

“I returned my two cars [Land Cruiser and Saloon car] to the state on January 7. Even the one they said we can purchase, I did not because that is not the right thing to do as a nation. What we are doing is bad. Why do we sell government cars to people at that low cost? I told them pointblank that I will not buy that car,” the 80-year-old former military officer said in an interview on NEAT FM’s morning show 'Ghana Montie'.

Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin, last week on NEAT FM revealed that there are some 200 cars missing from the Flagstaff House pool of vehicles.

The disclosure comes shortly after the Nana Akufo-Addo-led government set up a task-force to retrieve state assets unlawfully being held by public officials in the past Mahama led administration.

Commenting on the issue, General Nunoo-Mensah emphatically stated that “I am not a thief to keep state cars. I was properly brought up by a father who was not educated but a Christian and taught me Christian values. I am not a thief to keep state property.” 

He however urged individuals in the former administration who are still keeping state vehicles to return them to the new government.
