Though the Ministry of Communications has come out to deny allegations concerning a Ford Expedition that was presented as a ‘gift’ to President John Dramani Mahama, some Ghanaians on social media are still not satisfied with the response.
A Burkinabe contractor, Djibril Kanazoe, recently revealed he gave president John Mahama luxury vehicle as a gift in 2012.
This caused a stir in the political arena and since the Ghanaian constitution doesn’t permit, it has topped headlines for days.
Here are some reactions from social media users. Read and share your views with us.
The best bribe collector of all time. President Mahama He is the only one who can turn bribe into gift.

@Joy997FM A leader’s crime is a leading crime. Prez Mahama should have known better. The car was a bribe to influence more contracts.#Joysms
