President Nana Akufo Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has placed a ban on the purchase of new vehicles by Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs). A letter written by the Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, dated March 21, 2017 said the ban

holds until further notice. MDAs have been directed to make use of the “existing fleet of vehicles in their respective transport pools.” Mrs. Osei-Opare, however, noted that in extraordinary circumstances, MDAs that want to procure new vehicles “shall seek for and obtain the prior express written authorization.” The directive comes on the back of missing 208 state vehicles which was blamed on officials of the former National Democratic Congress (NDC) government.
