The Driver Vehicle Licensing Authority(DVLA) has asked the Ghana Police Service to investigate renowned Journalist Nana Aba Anamoah for flaunting a car with what they describe as a fake number plate as her birthday gift.
Nana Aba Anamoah on her birthday received a Range Rover as a birthday gift sparking a social media storm after it emerged that the number embossed on the vehicle was that of the registered Nissan Rogue.
The gift got people on social media talking because it’s unusual in Ghana to get a birthday gift of the sort in Ghana without “working” for it.
Few hours after videos of the gift went viral on social media, some media personalities investigated and it emerged that the registration of the Range Rover was for a Nissan Rogue and not for a Range Rover.
Deputy Chief Executive Officer of DVLA, Prince Opoku Edusei who has broken his silence on the matter, reveals that there is no way the DVLA will register different cars with the same numbers.
He indicated that the Authority has conducted its own investigations and have come to the realization that the car that bears that number which is Nana Aba’s Range Rover is not in their system and it’s not registered in Ghana.
“In every situation there only the truth and the lie. There’s no way DVLA will register two vehicles with the same number. We’ve conducted our own investigations and realized that the vehicle that bears that number, one of them which is a black Range Rover, I’m not sure whether It’s hers or not but that vehicle is not a registered vehicle in this country the plate on that vehicle is not an authorized or a plate that was issued by the DVLA.
The Rogue is in our system and its been duly registered and so that is the number that has been assigned that Nissan Rogue so obviously the Range Rover is not registered and we don’t have such in our system.”
He mentioned that the Authority has asked the Ghana Police Service to investigate the vehicle
“We’ve requested the Police to go into. We have done our own investigation and we’ve realised that that is not a legally licensed vehicle so we’ve asked for further investigations and I’m sure that another statement will come out to that effect and you’ll get to know what the DVLA is doing about it”.
