The Youth League of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) has said it will not withdraw its petition filed at the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (GHRAJ) for President John Mahama to be investigated for receiving a Ford Expedition gifted him by Burkinabe contractor, Djibril Kanazoe.
The group says it is determined to pursue the alleged conflict of interest matter to its logical conclusion.
The youth group has been asked by CHARJ to submit further and better particulars to substantiate the allegations against the president.
Secretary of the Youth League, Hardi Yakubu, said: “We are quite reluctant at this moment to reveal what we have or we don’t have until we file that information at CHRAJ. We will send our response and then we will tell the media what we have filed.”
“We are not under pressure and certainly no one can give us pressure to drop the case. We are quite determined to ensure the logical conclusion of this. We are revolutionary and we do not yield to pressure on things like these. We have to follow it,” he told Accra-based Citi FM.
Mr Kanazoe allegedly got a series of contracts from the government of Ghana after parting with the car gift.
