The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) has said it will not rush to present its report on the Ford gift saga which involves the President Mahama.

The Commission explained that because of the delicate nature of the matter being investigated there is the need to do it properly.

Speaking to Accra-based Citi FM Head of Public Relations at CHRAJ, Akosua Edu said they need more time to finish the probe.  

“At the end of the day, when the recommendations are out, it would allay any fears because for now; if we are not ready; we can’t come out and say we are ready. We are doing our work and the work must be properly done and so we don’t need to rush, this is a delicate issue.”

She indicated that they are making progress and asked Ghanaians to give them more time to complete their investigation.

“The investigation is being done in accordance with CHRAJ’s investigation regulation. I believe the petitioners have confidence in us that is why they brought the petition to us to work on.”

Background

The youth of the CPP on June 21, 2016, petitioned CHRAJ to probe President Mahama’s acceptance of the Ford Expedition gift from the contractor, Djibiri Kanazoe

The party’s youth wing argues that, the circumstances surrounding the gift and the acceptance of it by President Mahama, contravened the 1992 constitution.

The Burkinabe in question, Djibril Kanazoe, has been accused of ‘bribing’ President John Mahama with the expensive vehicle in an attempt to win a contract to execute a road construction project.

Speaker dismisses motion

The Speaker of Parliament Edward Doe Adjaho subsequently 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.
