DVLA Boss Exposes John Mahama On Commercial Vehicle Import Duties

A key executive with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA), Nana Oteatuoso Kokobeng II, has punched holes and exposed former President John Mahama on his promise to exempt Commercial vehicles from import duties if he secures power in December.

The Bekwai DVLA boss in an interview on Wontumi fm and tv which was monitored by, stated that the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress is telling pure lies since he can’t determine the private or commercial status of any vehicle by just looking at it.

Nana Oteatuoso Kokobeng II stated that “Mahama can’t just assume and tell that a car is private or commercial. When a car lands at the port, you can’t tell or know what it will be used for.”

He explained that it only lies in the hands of the owner to determine what he would use an imported car for.

It is up to the owner, the car is not for the state it is for the owner”, he fired at the former President.

He wondered the yardstick Mr. Mahama would use to determine the private or commercial status of a vehicle.

At what point in time will say a car that has arrived at the port is a private or commercial? What yardstick would you use?” he questioned.

Former President John Mahama says he will exempt Commercial vehicles, industrial and agricultural machinery from import duties if he secures power in December.

During his tour in the Volta region, the former President said “And we will exempt Commercial vehicles, industrial and agricultural machinery from import duties. My government from 2021 will exempt vehicles and all other equipment imported into the country for commercial, industry and agricultural purposes from import duty”.
