CPP petitions CHRAJ over Ford Expedition gift

General Secretary of the Conventions People's Party (CPP) Nii Armah Akomfrah

The petition is being championed by the youth league of the Party. The youth of the CPP earlier called for the resignation of President John Mahama following the controversy surrounding a 'car gift' given to him.

The petition was signed by the Secretary of the Party’s Youth League ‘Commander” Hardi Yakubu. He cited articles 284, 287, 218 of the 1992 constitution as laws backing their request for a formal investigation into the matter.

They asked that the Commission “establish whether or not accepting the gift occasioned a conflict of interest situation” and to also “clarify what manner of gifts given to and taken by public workers and government officials may be properly classified as bribes”.

The petition finally reiterates the trust the Youth League has in the Commission to investigate matter without any interference from any quarters. “We trust that you will discharge your mandate as per the constitution of the Republic of Ghana and that this would be done in time for definitive closure to be brought to the issue in question”
