The Ford vehicle gift to the President by a Burkinabe contractor came to light following an investigative piece by Manessah Azure.

Following the reportage, a government statement indicated that the President had received the vehicle as a gift.

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.

He said the recall of parliament by the Speaker Edward Doe Adjaho will do no good to all stakeholders involved.

Bagbin explained on Accra-based Starr FM that the recall will lead to more financial spending which will not do Ghana any good.

“The recall of the members of Parliament involves the cost of publicity, the cost of notice…you also have to pay for the cost of transportation for each member from their various constituencies to Parliament and back. This recall will also involve a lot of printing work, overtime allowances for staff because it’s an emergency and this involves a lot of work just to try to recapture something that is before a constitutional commission. It is not meant to serve any good interest for this country,” he said.
