Ghana moves to curb government spending

The ban on the purchase of new state vehicles in Ghana is aimed at curbing government expenditure, and freeing up money to improve people’s lives.

Government chief of staff Frema Osei-Opare sent a directive to all ministries, departments and agencies, ordering officials to use existing vehicles.

However, vehicles can be purchased in extraordinary circumstances if written approval is given, Ms Osei-Opare said.
