The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) has dismissed reports that its Chief Executive, Mr Noble John Appiah, is leading a special task force to destroy vital vehicle documents.

The DVLA in a statement said, "The management of the Authority wishes to explain that there is no iota of truth whatsoever in the story and it must therefore be ignored."

According to the Authority, some photographs making the round on social media and claiming that its Chief Executive was a cousin to the First Lady, Lordina Mahama; thus his resolve to destroy documents of government vehicles were false and should be ignored.

The Head of Public Relations, Kweku Darko Aferi explained that the Authority, at the beginning of the year, began an exercise to digitise all vehicle records due to overcrowding at its storage facility.

“For purposes of convenience, the Authority agreed a time table with the company doing the digitisation, Intelligent Card Processing Systems (ICPS), and also insisted that the documents should be moved in batches so that, at any point in time, some documents will be available so that the Authority’s work did not suffer.

 

“Three days ago ICPS finished one set of documents and returned them to the Accra 37 office and those are the documents seen in the vehicle in the pictures that are making the rounds,” the statement said.

The statement added that, "in the course of the exercise, the Authority placed advertisements in the Daily Graphic and Ghanaian Times newspapers explaining the significance of the exercise to customers, the impact it would have on its work and solicited their support to ensure a successful digitisation exercise."
