"On what basis are they making those claims that the President should step down and not contest the elections?" Dr. Ahadzie asked.

He argued that no logical conclusion can be drawn that the President was influenced to award contracts to renowned Burkinabe contractor, Djibril Kanazoe, following the gift he received from the latter which amounted to almost a $100,000

Opposition political parties and some anti-corruption crusaders are demanding the impeachment of President John Mahama, while others are asking him to step down as the presidential candidate of the NDC.

This follows the news that in 2012, Alhaji Kanzoe presented a brand new Ford Expedition to the President after he won the bid to construct the $650,000 Ghana Embassy Wall in the Burkina Faso capital, Ouagadougou.

However, in an interview on Accra-based Joy FM, Dr. Ahadzie asked: “On what basis are they making those claims that the President should step down and not contest the elections?”

According to him, “nothing has been proven against the President for untoward behaviour...the President is nowhere near the award of contracts.”

Dr. Ahadzie remarked that the matter has been discussed in “different interviews and on different social media platforms and indeed from different perspectives.”

“People are expressing their opinion and on no grounds will somebody suggest that because of this, a proper and legally elected Presidential candidate to step down. It doesn’t make sense.”
