The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) has initiated investigations into the matter following petitions by some Ghanaians.

The Minority in Parliament sought for the motion on the Ford vehicle to be moved in the House during the last meeting of Parliament.

The Majority Leader, Mr Alban Bagbin, made it clear in the House that the Majority in Parliament was ready for a debate on the issue any day.

However, Members of Parliament (MPs) have been recalled for a sitting on September 1, 2016 to consider a motion on the Ford vehicle gift.
