“Moving from here, we should begin putting responsibilities on people who abuse legal and parliamentary processes.” he added


The Speaker of Parliament Edward Doe Adjaho has dismissed the motion filed by the minority over President Mahama's Ford Gift Saga

Doe Adjaho who single-handedly shot down the motion asked the Clerk of Parliament to return the motion to the Member of Parliament who filed it.

Doe Adjaho cited constitutional provisions and earlier Supreme Court rulings to support his stance.

“The matter and issue here is not different in material particular from the matter under investigations by the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ). Article 287 of the constitution gives the CHRAJ the power to investigate matters regarding the code of conduct for persons public officers.”

“It is also instructive to note that the Supreme Court has made a number of pronouncements regarding the exclusive jurisdiction in terms of chapter 24 of the constitution, dealing with code of conducts for public officers including the President.”

Edward Doe Adjaho therefore, said "as a Speaker i am firmly convinced CHRAJ is the only mandated body to probe this case."
