The Office of the Vice President, Dr. Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia, says it is preparing to respond to the former rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Professor Stephen Adei’s threat to wage a one-man crusade against the Vice President Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to force him to reduce the number of cars in his convoy.
Prof Adei, addressing the 20th-anniversary celebrations of Morrison and Associations, an international audit firm, said the “about 16 cars” in Bawumia’s convoy was excessive.
“And so far the government is doing well except that if you go to the right quarters tell them that the next time I see Bawumia or any of them travelling with 16 four-wheel drives and then occupying the two lanes, so that coming and going should stop, I am going to do a one-man crusade.
That must be stopped at once because I followed them to Cape Coast last week and I was trying to overtake them to tell him to stop, and then the police stopped me and said oh Prof can you give a distance”. When Onua FM Ghana Dadwene contacted the office of the Vice President on Friday, it was informed that the issue has come to their notice but it will response in due course.
The Communications Director, Frank Agyei-Twum, stated, “well, on the Prof Adei’s issue, the office will respond at the appropriate time.”
