August 31, 2016 – Ghanaian President John Mahama Faces Impeachment For Collecting Car Gift From Contractor

Ghana’s parliament has initiated moves to impeach President John Mahama with three months to the nation’s general elections.

Though the legislators are on recess, the Speaker, Joe Adjaho, has recalled them for resumption Thursday, September 1, to begin debate on the issue.

Mahama is alleged to have received an expensive car (Ford) as ‘gift’ from a contractor and national of Burkina Faso but opposition parties and a cross section of Ghanaians, have, however, insisted the present was a bribe.

According to the country’s constitution, a sitting President or political office holder is barred from collecting a gift, either in cash or kind.

    Its seems Ghana is better than Nigeria. If it were in Nigeria. A sitting president can even buy private jets, loot money and collect as many gifts as possible, whether in cash or gifts. I love Ghana constitution. Nice move

    WHEN YOU LOOK at Ghana, you would see a country that truly wants to rise far from her old, infamous past. Just consider the kind of laws they make! If a sitting political office holder is barred from receiving any form of gift, you can be sure they would discharge their duties without favour. Nigeria has many things to learn from that small neighbour of ours, but pride and deep-rooted corruption stands in our way.

    Ghana the best democracy in Africa. If Ghana can continue on this trend, she will be the epicenter of Africa democracy. Right now that Country has been rated Africa best democracy. Nigeria politicians where are you?. We are the giant of Africa by mouth. You better eat an humble pie and ask Ghana how they are doing it?.
