Minister for National Security, Albert Kan Dapaah has justified the reason her ordered his party members to return the cars they seized from National Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams.
According to him, he did not want a recur of the Rambo style cars were seized from appointees of the erstwhile Kufuor administration by NDC thugs when the late former President Atta Mills won elections in 2008.
Mr. Kan Dapaah’s comment comes after he was accused of pampering appointees in the Mahama-led administration who had taken home their official cars.
The issue became murkier when the National Security Minister ordered a return of the cars taken from the residence of Kofi Adams.
Brong Ahafo Regional Youth Organizer, Kwame Baffoe popularly known as Abronye DC who led the operation said the conduct of Mr. Dapaah is a clear example of “scratch my back, I scratch your back”.
In an exclusive interview on Kumasi-based Ash FM Friday, Mr. Kan Dapaah dispelled that rumour insisting that he wanted things done lawfully.
“When I heard the news, I met with the young men but when they could not provide evidence that the seized cars were not for government, I asked them to return it, report the matter to the police for them to take charge” he added.
Since change has come, Kan Dapaah could not fathom why the old unlawful things should continue under the Akufo-Addo government.
“If we say change has come then we must not repeat the things done under the Mahama-led administration which we condemned”.
Mr. Dapaah said he is for plans to retrieve all properties belonging to the state but it must be done lawfully.
