The Member of Parliament (MP) for Asokwa in the Ashanti Region, Maxwell Kofi Jumah, has stated that the Deputy Chief of Staff, Alex Segbefia has to be questioned by the government for allegedly selling state cars cheaply and giving some out as freebies.
Speaking in an interview on Adom FM, the NPP MP said Alex Segbefia and his �cohorts� at the castle have not been questioned about the State cars seized from past NPP officials which he sold at the port.
According to him, it has been reported by various newspapers but the government, led by its anti-corruption campaigner, President Mills is refusing to call him to book in relation to the allegations being peddled against him.
"Most of the cars have been sold cheaply at the port and at Adabraka, a suburb of Accra, and some have been given out freely," he alleged.
Maxwell Kofi Jumah raised this issue when making a remark in relation to a statement made by the former 1st lady, Mrs. Rawlings that some past government officials should be prosecuted.
�It should not look as if we have an NDC law or NPP law which is different from the national one...Mrs. Rawlings did not mention the names of any NDC member but only NPP officials...She should have said that if she had committed any offence, she ought to be arrested,� he stated, apparently referring to the instance where the former 1st lady had been dragged to court by the previous government based on various offences she allegedly committed.
According to him, though he would not want to see the former 1st lady prosecuted, Hon. Jumah strongly believes she has so many questions to answer in court.
"Based on Mrs. Rawlings words and other remarks by the President of the country, all NDC, NPP, CPP and any past official who has committed a criminal offence should be dealt with drastically," he added.
