President John Dramani Mahama on Tuesday, 14th June 2016, presented 500 vehicles to public and private sector educational institutions throughout the country.
The vehicles, made up of Nissan Navara Pick-ups, Mahindra Pick-ups and 66-seater buses were presented to colleges of education, polytechnics and technical universities and special schools.
