Political Science Lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Dr. Richard Amoako Baah has said that President Mahama has no right to accept gifts.

He said in his position as President, the acceptance of any gift from any individual or entity could lead to conflict of interest, thus breaching the code of conduct for public officers.





He insists that the president has violated Article 284 of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana which states that, “A public officer shall not put himself in a position where his personal interest conflicts or is likely to conflict with the performance of the functions of his office, and he should immediately resign.

“There is no doubt that the allegations leveled against him are true. Mahama should know that he is not an ordinary person and so has no right to accept gifts or whatsoever that conflicts his personal interest. It is a disgrace to our country and I think Mahama’s campaign is really in trouble” he stated.

Dr. Amoako Baah was reacting to the revelation that President John Mahama received a car gift worth $100,000 from a Burkinabe contractor who was incidentally awarded a $650,000 contract to fence a parcel of land for Ghana's Embassy in that country.

The government has since issued a statement denying that the gift influenced the president in any way.

A statement signed by the Minister of Communications, Dr Edward Omane Boamah, noted: “The said vehicle, which was placed in the vehicle pool at the presidency as per established convention, had nothing to do with the award of the contracts.”





But the Political Science lecturer in an interview called for a swift probe into the matter.

“The moment you take gifts from people then you owe them a favour. It is just senseless for a contractor to dash Mahama a car. I don’t see it as a gift but a bribe.What brand of car can’t the President afford in this world?

“There should be an official investigation into the matter and since Manasseh has evidence, it will go a long way to see the president being impeached from office” he declared.
