“All these things are done for the dignity of the office not the individual so whether you like the person or not the office must be honored and president Kufuor’s view is that the president must have a choice in where he wants to stay but he leaves it to the government to decide.”

The comments come on the back of a request by John Mahama requesting his official residence to be given to him as part of his ex-gratia.

It has also emerged that the former President Kufuor has not received a house as part his ex-gratia.

“He hasn’t received any house. We know that the committee has recommended one but it has not been done. 3 to 4 years ago, the government came up with a house at TRASSACO but he rejected it because he was not consulted on it. Later he was given a land site to build his choice but government is yet to do that.”
