Former President John Mahama has asked for the official Vice Presidential bungalow to be allocated to him as part of his ex-gratia.

The bungalow, located at Cantonment, housed Professor John Evans Atta while he was serving as Vice President under Jerry John Rawlings and Aliu Mahama, who also served as Vice President under John Agyekum Kufuor.

The bungalow in question is a Guest House of COCOBOD but has been configured to house Ghana's vice presidents.

 

John Mahama first occupied the building in 2009 when he served as Vice President before becoming President.

Even as President, the bungalow became his official residence although he has a home as a President inside the Flagstaff House.

This came to light in a leaked document his Chief of Staff wrote to the Akufo-Addo transition team lead by Osafo Marfo.

In addition, the former president is demanding for Bungalow No.6, 3rd Avenue, Ridge, Accra as his office.”
