The Progressive Peoples Party (PPP) says it is not satisfied with a report by the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), exonerating President John Dramani Mahama of all corrupt charges.

The party has described the report as a deliberate attempt to cover up for the president.

To this end, the party intends to hold a press conference on Wednesday to address the issue.

This would be after it has critically examined the report from the commission.

Director of Communications for the PPP, Paa Kow Ackon told Kapital News’ Felicity Frempong that the party would probe the issue further.

“It doesn’t end there. We are going to take some time to delve into the issues this weekend. God willing by Wednesday, we will come out with a press conference. Because we are not convinced about the report CHRAJ has issued to the effect that the president is not corrupt,” he said.

Mr. Ackon’s comments come after a report by CHRAJ exonerating President John Mahama of accusations of conflict of interest after he accepted a gift from a Burkinabe contractor in 2012.

After the investigations,  CHRAJ said that the president did not breach the bribery, corruption or conflict of interest laws of the country.

The Commission said, since the president declared the gift, surrendered it to the state’s vehicle pool and did not use his public office for private benefit he could not have been found to have breached the procedures of conflict of interest.

The PPP says it would respond to these issues by Wednesday.
