Ade Coker, the National Democratic Congress' Greater Accra Regional Chairman, has stated that it will be unwise for him to be next target of government seizure of alleged state vehicles from his residence.
He was reacting to the incident that occurred at the residence of the National Organizer of the Party, Kofi Adams where 15 armed soldiers and National Security Operatives stormed his premises and seized five vehicles, allegedly belonging to the state.
Following the incident, rumors emerged that the former Ambassador and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Belarus in Ghana Ade Coker would be the next target.
However speaking to Kasapa FM, Mr Coker said, "I bought my first car at age 24, I have bought more than 10 cars all with monies I earned through my sweat and toil. I have never used any state car before, when my party was in power, we were not given state vehicles so I’m surprised by what I’m hearing. If they are able to point one car of mine which belongs to the state, I’ll instantly hand over the keys to them. They wouldn’t need to bring soldiers to my house, why are we behaving as though we’re in an era of coup. We’ve gone past that stage, if I deserve anything from Ghana for my service to the country, it should be something more than a car."
He added that any such action by the National security will very unfortunate as throughout his political career, he never need a state vehicle.
