Beyond The Missing Cars

Daily Guide
15 February 2017 | Editorial

There are more serious issues to tackle in the country than the subtle thievery of state cars in the name of their being sold to public officials who used them. The excuse for their absence from the inherited transport pool only came after intense media bashing.

Much as we would rather the issue is tackled with little publicity as the search continues, it would appear that some disgruntled persons within the NDC are still sulking at their party's defeat and would continue to engage in political buffoonery in the manner we are witnessing in the public space.

The rot unearthed after the exit of the previous administration are so overwhelming that dwelling on them for near indefinitely would not inure to our interest. It is important, however, that we address the silliness of persons who continue to bask in the thought that they can continue to throw dust into the eyes of Ghanaians as they did in the past years.

A certain Kwame Jantuah was in the circus a few days ago spawning, something which can best be described as imbecility of the highest order.

Anybody who can seek to reduce the seriousness of political cheats selling state cars, some of them barely two years old to themselves to silly punks does not deserve to be spared public lampooning. Why would somebody think that the president of the Republic spawn stories about missing cars simply because he wants to change the fleet at the Presidency?  Simply preposterous and outright nonsense to say the least! If others did so, including all manner of bizarre ploys which all depleted the public purse, the same cannot happen with the new order. The empirical evidence to buttress the point are enormous, we dare state.

The president can order the replenishing of the depleted stock of vehicles at the Presidency as he deems fit without resorting to such cheap means as the likes of the man aforementioned is putting out on the public domain.

There is, indeed, cause to do so because most of the vehicles have gone, isn't it?

We should move forward as a nation and ignore such persons who think that propaganda is a factor in the development of a country. Ghanaians voted to oust the NDC government because they found everything wrong with their management of the affairs of this country.

We can say with certainty basing our conclusion on the position of a key player in the previous regime that the cars were sold out to their users in a manner which in our estimation leaves much to be desired in terms of propriety.

We have searched for the missing cars for a while now, only to be given this insight into how most of them vanished from the state pool just when the government was going to hand over to the new one.

Let us be serious about the affairs of this country and come of such pranks which would take us nowhere. The good news, however, is that Ghanaians now read between the lines more than they did before.
