Ministers of state and their deputies will from 2018 start using saloon vehicles [Camrys and Corollas] instead of Toyota Landcruiser V8s as part of a cost-cutting measure to be introduced by the Akufo-Addo administration, Mr Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko has said.

I hear so much talk about V8 this month and I am a little confused....I am also aware that the Finance Minister is in fact planning to buy Toyota Camry, Corolla and the like for Ministers and their deputies, etc. from 2018 onwards. So why all of a sudden all the talk as if there is rather a surge in V8 numbers procured for Govt officials? The irony of social media campaigns, sometimes," Mr Otchere-Darko posted on Facebook on Monday.

I hear so much talk about V8 this month and I am a little confused. What I do know is that the Minister of Finance has stubbornly refused to buy the usual Toyota Landcruiser V8 or what-have-you for ministers since the change in Govt.

Even the vehicles that were ordered by the previous Govt have had to be audited and stalled and audited with little appetite for them except that the contract may have to be honoured even after some necessary adjustments.

I am also aware that the Finance Minister is in fact planning to buy Toyota Camry, Corolla and the like for Ministers and their deputies, etc. from 2018 onwards. So why all of a sudden all the talk as if there is rather a surge in V8 numbers procured for Govt officials? The irony of social media campaigns, sometimes.

Why dont you make a deal with Apostle Kwadwo Safo Kantanka to supply the government easily with locally manufactured Kantanka cars? Of course in recent times Afrika is ruled by some mis-educated elite who dont think local and are full of inferiority complex.

Good decision. The first one should go to the Minister for Roads. I sure hope he lives at Kwabenya, Ashongman or Brekusu

Is Gabby the finance Minister? If they like they can use bicycle to work. We are too mature for these propaganda.

This cost cutting is long overdue but why did they wait till now? It seems they are reacting to the same criticism he is complaining about of social media! You can't have money to pay Nurses and teachers but you spend $100,000 to buy vehicles for politicians! That is PUBLIC ***barred word***! Callous, ***barred word***, abise of power and disgrace indeed! And this gpes back all the way tpnthe NDC-1, NPP-1 and NDC-2 and Nana should have spelt this out earlier! Anyway Bravo! Better late than never! Do more cost cutting!!

The whole directives or concept is a complete "Sham". In the first place, who does Gabby speak for ? Since when was he appointed the gov't spokesman ? Secondly, since most of these ministers are already using V8 vehicles, are they going hand over all their V8 cars? and to who? Is the gov't going to purchase over 220 salon cars to the ministers and their deputies at two (2) cars each? The cardinal question is where will all the V8 cars go. No wonder the whole idea is hatched, mooted and spearheaded by a cr1m1na1 and a convicted guy called Gabby Otchere Darko, a UK jail bird. We said it ooo we said it- now here we are". The ***barred word*** brigade has started working. Before Ghanaians will say hey jack" ......... it is all gone.

Name: Babalawo
Somebody help me tell Gabby that the 110 NPP minsters all have brand new V8 bought for them already which should last them at least 4 years. So who is are they going to give the Camry, Corollas to? Or they are going to appoint new Ministers?
