- Kweku Baako questions government's habit of auctioning off state vehicles at the end of an administrations term in office
- He reveals that NDC Government auctioned off 200 vehicles to state officials before handing over reigns of government.
- He confirmed that the "Mahama Ford" is indeed still at the Flagstaff House.
Kweku Baako Jr, Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide, has questioned government's policy of auctioning off state vehicles to state officials.
In his view, it is high time the policy that allows stat vehicles to be auctioned off to government officials is reviewed because, according to him, it does not bode well for the country.
He Iterated that this was not the first time state vehicles had been auctioned off by previous administrations. He recounted that the NDC "took away" 144 vehicles in 2001 in the final days of that administration, while another "trend" also happened when the John Agyekum Kufuor led administration left office.
“The tendency is to play on the keyboard of people’s emotions. You throw these matters into the street, the masses win. So, perhaps, the government needs to think that in order not to suffer any collateral damage, we should take a second look at this policy.”

Speaking on Peace FM's Kokrokoo, Mr. Baako supported claims that the NDC administration did indeed sell off numerous vehicles to it's officials at the end of the administrations tenure.
The Editor-in-Chief of the Crusading Guide also touched on rumors that President Mahama's notorious Ford Expedition "gift" was no longer at the Flagstaff House.
"It's at the Flagstaff House. It is there but there’s an interesting thing. The NDC list that they issued by a certain Johnny Osei Kofi, when you go to that list; you won’t see the Ford there. It’s not on the list. I have gone for a copy of also the Administrator General’s list. I have also scanned through, the Ford is not listed. These are problematic areas in terms of record keeping. But incidentally, I have a copy of what the Logistics Officer of the office of the President handed over, interestingly I found it there."
