Nana Akomea, the Managing Director of Intercity STC, and member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has made an observation about the state of the majority of billion vans in Ghana.
During a panel discussion on Kokrokoo, the morning show on Peace 104.3 FM hosted by Kwame Sefa-Kay, he said most bullion vans operating in Ghana are only useful for transporting cloth.
His comment comes on the back of the shooting and death of Emmanuel Osei, a policeman by armed robbers whilst guarding a Nissan Buillion van with registration number GT 8592 owned by Montran.
"Because these pickups with a welded back and padlock. It is only good for transporting cloth from Makola to Spintex, not money."
He also suggested that banks pool resources together to buy about ten if the cost is too high for individual institutions: "if a bank needs one, they can sign and use it for the necessary transport."
