PREZ MAHAMA IS CHEAP LIKE PROSTITUE FOR ACCEPTING A SECONDHAND CAR - YVONNE NELSO TO MAHAMA
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Manhyia South has slammed President Mahama saying he is the cheapest President under the sun for accepting a second hand Ford Expedition car gift. Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh said Ghana’s President lowered his standard and cheapened the highest office of the land when he walked himself into the car scandal.
President Mahama is caught in what many have described as an untidy controversy following Joy News investigative journalist, Manasseh Awuni Azure’s latest piece. Burkinabe contractor, Djibril Kanazoe sent a gift of $100,000 car to the President whom he told Manasseh Azure is his friend. Mr Kanazoe was behind the construction of the controversial $650,000 Ghana Embassy wall in Burkina Faso. Many political scientists and anti-corruption campaigners have expressed their misgivings about the gift the President received.
“If it walks like a duck, it barks like a duck and talks like a duck, then it is a duck,” he said. He stated that “If within a matter of a year after the relationship blossoms and he has since received two contracts then it amounts to a conflict of interest.” The Communications Minister, Dr Edward Omane Boamah debunked claims President Mahama has engaged in a conflict of interest by receiving the car gift. He said the vehicle was a mere gift and has nothing to do with the number of contracts
Messrs Oumarou Kanazoe Contractors of Burkina Faso received from the Ghana government. He stated that “I am here this morning not to attack the work of Manasseh but I am here this morning to indicate that my President, your president, our president is incorruptible and not corrupt and this mud will not stick on President John Mahama.”
