Several ministers, who attended President John Dramani Mahama’s last Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, could not hold back their tears.
At his last Cabinet meeting where the president announced that it would be his last time with them as president, many of the ministers were drowned in tears,
Even though it is believed that Ministers who attend Cabinet meetings are not supposed to divulge issues discussed during their sitting, the Minister for Youth and Sports, Nii Lante Vanderpuije revealed the demeanour of the Ministers on Accra-based Radio Gold Wednesday.
According to him, President Mahama was compelled to comfort the said Ministers with words of encouragement.
He indicated that at the end of the sitting, “President
Mahama and his vice then stood at the corridor after the meeting and each minister went to them to greet them.”
Meanwhile, President John Mahama is set to hand over to the president-elect, Nana Akufo-Addo, in a ceremony on Saturday, January 7, at the Independence Square in Accra.
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo who won last month’s presidential election with over 5 million votes will occupy his predecessor’s desk at the Flagstaff House (Jubilee House) from January 7, 2017.
