The Campaign Coordinator for the National Democratic Congress’s (NDC) 2016 election campaign, Kofi Adams, has said that the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice’s (CHRAJ) ruling shows President Mahama is incorruptible.

Speaking on Accra-based Citi FM he said the ruling will go a long way to shame critics that “they are only trying to destroy a gem, a pearl that we have.”

He added that President Mahama “is not somebody that anyone can bribe, that President Mahama did not receive a bribe and that the gift of Ford was not intended to bribe him or influence him in anyway.”

The Commission, in a 78-page report, said its investigations concluded that the President’s action did not amount to accepting a bribe.

This is because, upon evidence, the President submitted the Ford Expedition gift from the Burkinabe contractor, Mr Djibril Freres Kanazoe to the state.

CHRAJ, however, said Mr Mahama violated the Gift Policy under the Code of Conduct.

Some sections of Ghanaians expressed anger over reports that President Mahama was given a brand new Ford Expedition in 2012 by a Burkinabe contractor, Djibril Kanazoe who won the bid to construct the $650,000 Ghana Embassy Wall in the Burkina Faso capital, Ouagadougou.

Many anti-corruption campaigners slammed the president for what they describe as his disregard for the guidelines on conflict of interest in accepting the vehicle gift.

However, Government in a statement issued by Communications Minister, Edward Omane Boamah said even though the car was received, it had nothing to do with the contract awarded.

President John Mahama subsequently rubbished corruption allegations against him, saying such claims are baseless.

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