General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has bristled at the calls for ex-President John Dramani Mahama to vacate his residence at Cantonments, saying he would only do so on one condition.
Speaking on Asempa Fm, the NDC scribe, popularly known as General Mosquito, said that unless President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo plans to move into the house himself, the former leader would not vacate the premises.
According to him, the claims that Dr Bawumia is stranded with nowhere to stay are false, and thus he does not require use of the building.
“If Akufo-Addo wants to live in that house, President Mahama will move but Dr. Bawumia has a place of residence because Amissah Arthur has moved” he said on Ekosii Sen.
The former President is currently residing in a bungalow at Cantonments which he used as his official residence whilst in office. The President has requested the building to be given to him as part of his retirement package, but the request has sparked intense debate amongst Ghanaians, with some saying it represents overreach on the part of Mahama.
