National Democratic Congress(NDC) Flagbearer John Mahama has served notice he’ll pursue all GPRTU buses procured by his government but have been appropriated by chairmen of the ruling New Patriotic Party when he comes back to power in 2021.
He has accused the Akufo Addo government of diverting 33-seater buses he procured for the Ghana Private Road Transport Union(GPRTU) before exiting power to its party chairmen.
Commenting on the matter in an interview on Woezor TV monitored by Kasapafmonline.com in Cape Cape Saturday, the former President who condemned the action by the NPP stated that he’ll ensure that the rightful owners receive the buses when he’s voted back to power.
“Before we left office we managed to procure a lot of mid-size Benz buses and a lot of small vehicles for taxi service under the MASLOC programme. We left those vehicles there, we registered them and we were in the process of handing them over to the GPRTU and the new government came in. When the new government came for some strange reason they wanted to create an impression that the vehicles were ordered in their time. So even though the vehicles were registered with 2016 number plates, they took off all the number plates and re-registered the vehicles with another year’s date within their era.”
