Tracking device for government vehicles
The installation of the electronic system was one of the recommendations that the Administrator-General in charge of Government Assets made in his report to the government.
The deputy minister said the Chief of Staff, Mr Prosper Douglas Bani, had tasked the Administrator-General to engage with all the ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) to compile a comprehensive report on all government vehicles.
He said the Administrator-General had since presented his report that made recommendations and also gave a road map on how to streamline the monitoring process.
Mr Ofosu Kwakye said all government vehicles would be registered GV and indicated that the electronic system would detect any attempt to change the number.
He stressed that the registration of the vehicles would not be selective.
“All government vehicles will be registered. No selective application,” he said.
He warned that any official found to be using government vehicles outside official assignments would be sanctioned.
Mr Ofosu Kwakye confirmed that the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) would begin the installation of prepaid meters in the official residences of all ministers and government appointees next week and asked those officials to cooperate with the ECG officials during the exercise.
