Administrator General, David Yaro has said his office took no inventory of the number of state vehicles left as of the time the Mahama administration was handing over to President Nana Akufo-Addo and his government.
“No we didn’t,” Mr Yaro answered in response to a question about whether he took that inventory.
“We have made sure that these are captured in the handing over notes and the handing over notes were discussed with the incoming and outgoing ministers of state and they agreed.
“So as soon as you do that, it becomes the property of the state or agency in charge and it will now be their responsibility to look at the handing over notes vis-à-vis what is on the ground. We are not to do the physical check to be sure that what is being handed over to them is there before they sign,” he said told Accra-based Joy FM.
There is currently a back-and-forth between the Akufo-Addo government and the erstwhile Mahama administration concerning the number of state vehicles left after the president’s press secretary Eugene Arhin revealed that 208 state cars were missing.
The former government released a statement on Thursday saying it left behind 641 cars and dared the new government to point out the alleged missing ones.
