I Received One Of The Cars Mahama Gave To Celebrities But NPP Took It Away – Actress Akorfa Edjeani



Renowned Ghanaian actress Akofa Edjeani has shared her experience of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government’s repossession of a vehicle granted to her during the previous National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration.

Edjeani detailed that under President John Dramani Mahama’s tenure, vehicles were distributed to some celebrities in need, with the understanding that these would be repaid as loans. As a beneficiary of this initiative, Edjeani received a Chevrolet and was adhering to the payment terms.

However, after the NPP assumed office in 2017, Edjeani’s vehicle was confiscated without explanation. In an interview with 3FM, Edjeani recounted, “When John Mahama was in office, he distributed 50 cars to celebrities, starting with 25 in the north, in Kumasi, and 25 in Accra, to both actors and musicians. I received a Chevrolet, but when the NPP took over, my car was taken away. My son was using it; they had installed trackers. Once they were in power, they located it. My son was driving when they intercepted him and took the car without allowing him to retrieve his belongings, including his backpack, basketball, and school bag.”

Edjeani emphasized that these vehicles were not gifts, but were intended to be repaid over a period, potentially spanning five years. “The cars were given with the intention of increasing the number each year. For those who could afford it, a payment plan of perhaps five years was set up for installments. These weren’t giveaways,” she explained.

Meanwhile, other celebrities, such as actress Oheneyere Mercy Asiedu, have publicly supported John Dramani Mahama, citing his provision of vehicles to creatives as a reason for their endorsement. Asiedu’s call to the creative community underscores the ongoing debate about political support and its impact on the arts sector in Ghana.
