- Vehicle Retrieval Task Force boss says elements at the Flagstaff House hindering his outfit's work
- Says Preidency officials keep submitting counter claims suggesting seized vehicles do not belong to the state
Mr. Daasebre Kwabena Ahenkorah, the National Operations Commander of the Presidency's Vehicle Retrieval Task Force has alleged that persons working for the Presidency's Director of Operations are hindering their efforts to retrieval state assets.
Speaking to Kasapa FM on Thursday June 15, Mr. Ahenkorah stated that officials who report to Lord Commey, the Director of Operation at the Flagstaff House have continuously hampered his task force's work. He said these officials tend to claim that they've done their own investigations that conclude that the task force's seized vehicles do not belong to the state, and therefore must be returned to their owners.
Mr. Ahenkorah expressed that these yet unknown officials' conduct tend to defeat the task force's "painstaking" work to locate and retrieve state vehicles from private individuals.

"Whenever we retrieve the cars, they would also come with a counter-claim that those cars do not belong to the state and so we should return to the owners. For this reason some of us have stopped retrieving state cars from people.”
Mr. AHenkorah's comments come in the wake of similar ones made by the ruling New Patriotic Party's (NPP) Brong Ahafo Regional Youth Organizer, Mr. Kwame Baffoe. Mr. Baffoe stated that he would no longer participate in the Vehicle Retrieval Task Force's operations and will return to his former profession of farming cassava.
"Henceforth, no journalist should call me to ask me about stolen cars,” said Mr. Kwame Baffoe, AKA Abronye DC.
