New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong is advocating for the scrapping of public auctioning of state vehicles to government officials.
He blamed some elements at the presidency for spearheading the auctioning process, a situation he describes as worrying since such a development undermines President Akufo Addo’s administration.
“This system of government officials buying cars at a cheaper cost is worrying. Why should you engage in such illegality? I think it should be scrapped. The buying of cars by these government officials should be scrapped immediately” he charged.

Mr Kennedy Agyapong’s comment follows revelation by the Chief Executive officer of Public Sector Reforms, Mr. Kusi Boafo, insisting that the Mahama government bought cars at expensive prices and later sold them back to the suppliers at low cost.
The issue of the number of vehicles bequeathed to the Akufo-Addo government by the Mahama administration has become contentious.

The NPP’s Boafo had alleged that former President Mahama and the former Chief of Staff under the erstwhile Mahama government, sold over 376 state vehicles to themselves, friends, and cronies at cheap prices.
But the former Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah in a reaction on the matter debunked the allegations.
The former government official in a Press statement on Monday said the allegations by Thomas Kusi Boafo in that regard are totally false and malicious.
”Under no circumstance and at no time during my tenure as Chief of Staff or the previous government was any such vehicle either bought or sold at the price quoted by Kusi Boafo. His claims in that regard are therefore totally false and malicious.”

But speaking on Adom TV’s Morning Show “Badwam” Tuesday, the controversial MP stated he has further and better particulars that shows deals of all the vehicles that were sold cheaply to suppliers by the Mahama administration and his government as well.
According to him, the cars were sold off without payment to the appropriate accounts.
He therefore called on President Akufo Addo to immediately scrap the process since it amounts to corruption.
