She particularly cautioned the drivers who would be mostly in charge of the vehicle to use them as if they owned them.
“Government has loaned these vehicles to us for only three months and we must be mindful that the image, integrity and reputation of the Commission will be at stake if we mishandle these vehicles,” she added.
She urged all Ghanaians to continue to adhere to all the safety protocols to help contain the spread of the COVID-19.
