Former President John Mahama is said to have requested 10 vehicles from the government as part of his retirement benefits.
The vehicle will be five saloon cars and five SUVs, according to information trickling in from the Flagstaff House.
The development has sparked a firestorm of controversy and outrage in a section of the public, with some Ghanaians taking to social media to accuse Mahama of greed.
According to them, it was unjustifiable for a rich former president to be given 10 vehicles at the expense of the state.
Supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have especially been caustic in their condemnation of the former president, prompting their National Democratic Congress (NDC) counterparts to push back with claims that former President J.A. Kufuor also got eight vehicles as part of his retirement benefits.
The NDC supporters said Kufuor got four saloon cars and four SUVs for himself and his staff.
Mahama recently sparked controversy after he indicated his desire to maintain his official bungalow as his retirement home.
He later wrote a letter to the presidency, withdrawing his request to keep the bungalow.
