Akufo-Addo travels with about 50 vehicles to the Volta Region

The convoy of the President has been a major talking point in recent times, especially whenever he is embarking on a nation-wide tour.

At his recent visit to Tsito in the Volta Region, the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had about 50 vehicles in his convoy.

The vehicles comprised V8 Landcruisers and Pickup trucks.

Meanwhile, there was a directive sometime in August 2018 that President Akufo-Addo had put a stop to his rather long convoys.

The directive which was issued when he [President] was about visiting the Ashanti Region on a five day working tour stated that all Ministers, Deputy Ministers, Members of Parliament, Municipal and District Chief Executives who are mandated or wish to accompany the President on his 5-day tour of the Ashanti Region will have to make themselves comfortable in an STC bus provided by the state.

With this new directive, government appointees willing to follow the President on tours were no longer to get the pleasure of using their V8 Landcruisers and Pickup trucks.

It also emerged in July that the President visited the Jomoro District in the Western Region with about 75 vehicles in his convoy, but the ruling party was quick to debunk the media reports.

In a video that is circulating on social media, it appears that the directive which was issued in August 2018 is not being adhered to.

Long convoys are milking the state of its little resources in terms of fueling and vehicle maintenance
