The Chief Executive officer of Public Sector Reforms, Mr. Kusi Boafo, has insisted he is in possession of sleazy dossier to prove his claim 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 in a programme with Kessben Tv’s Morning show host, Omanhene 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.”
In an interview on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.5 FM, Mr. Kusi Boafo stated he’d further and better particulars that covered the tainted deals of all the vehicles that were sold cheaply to suppliers by the Mahama administration.
“I was even charitable with the information given earlier. In 2016 they sold as many as 129 cars that were manufactured in 2015. It’s very sad that cars which were procured by the former administration were sold back to suppliers at a ridiculously low prices, some within just 14 days intervals of buying. Some were very special vehicles with high specs from Dubai but were auctioned cheaply in six months. Julius Debrah made reference to a long-standing policy under which salon cars aged two years and above are permitted to be bought by departing government officials. I’m confused here, let me ask is V8 vehicles saloon cars?
“For me, as an auditor, a professional Accountant with over 19 years experience on the job, you’ll expect that I’ll raise pertinent questions on such clandestine deals that cars that were procured at such huge prices will be sold within a period of 6 months.”
