Ghana's former High Commissioner to India, Mr. Sam Pee Yalley, has dismissed allegations of missing state vehicles currently being put forth by members of the current government.
“No single vehicle is missing…what is this bull story that 200 and something vehicles are missing; how… How come we cannot trace cars used by immediate past president when even cars used by Kwame Nkrumah are parked in the state house? It is a joke," said the diplomat.
Speaking on Radio Gold's Alhadji Alhadji, Sam Pee Yalley insisted that "no car is missing" and that the Akufo-Addo led administration was using the scandal to creat negative sentiment towards the immediately past NDC administration.

“…and you think you are doing politics? It is rather tarnishing our image in the international world…these are all vote gimmicks; stop it. Arhin (Eugene Arhin) stop that joke; this country is not for small boys and girls; this country is a matured country stop that joke….complaining that those cars are missing shows your own incompetence. For me…no one single car has been missing or stolen; the cars are there”
Mr. Sam Pee Yalley's comments come following comments from some members of the public saying that the New Patriotic Party administration is using the allegation that state vehicles are missing in order to be able to import more vehicles without backlash from the general public.
