Former President John Mahama has sent a letter to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo withdrawing his preference of his official bungalow as part of his retirement package.
Former President Mahama earlier denied claims that he has refused to vacate his official residence to allow the current vice president Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to occupy it.
The former president who has been staying in the Cantonments residence ever since he was Vice president explained that he had asked for the residence to be allocated to him as his “retirement home”.
Mahama said the reports are “mischievous” and are only meant to “embarrass” him when he had formally informed the incoming administration through his former chief of staff Julius Debrah to continue staying in the house.
“The claims that Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia is stranded and has nowhere to stay, is mischievous and deliberately intended to embarrass President Mahama.
Government has also denied claims that an agreement has been reached to allow former President Mahama to continue staying in his Cantonments residence.
