Ford gift saga: Mahama tells CHRAJ he is innocent

President Mahama has in a letter to the commission on human rights and administrative justice (CHRAJ) revealed that he is innocent of allegations of bribery leveled against him after accepting a Ford gift from a Burkinabe contractor.

The letter, signed by his lawyer, Tony Lithur, follows calls on the president to resign as members of opposition parties as the NPP and CPP argue the president acted in his parochial interest.
