Minister of Environment, Science and Technology, Dr Joe Oteng-Adjei has denied stealing state vehicle which was in his possession six months after he lost his job at the Energy Ministry.

Dr Oteng Adjei who served as a Minister of Energy under late President Atta Mills admitted keeping the vehicle, but said it has been returned since Monday when the minority raised the alarm, maintaining he “didn’t steal it.”

The minority in Parliament has accused him of still using one of the controversial luxurious vehicles bought with funds meant for rural electricity extension project.

He has therefore revealed that he returned the state vehicle in his possession.

Speaking to Joy FM, he said he have returned the vehicle to the ministry. “I have returned it to the ministry”. I asked them to go and take it when I read the Daily Guide report…They actually came this morning and took the car away.”

Dr Oteng-Adjei explained he was still keeping the Lexus vehicle because when he moved from the Energy Ministry to the Ministry of Environment and Science “their financial situation was a bit difficult” so he worked out with his previous ministry to keep the car “so that we don’t spend money to go and buy another car.”
