Ghanaians ask why Mahama copies Asantehene in withdrawal letter over bungalow

It appears the immediate past President, John Dramani Mahama, will not have breathing space anytime soon, as controversies surrounding his request to keep a state bungalow as a retirement home, takes a new twist. In a letter dated January 10, 2017, withdrawing his request for the residence after a huge public condemnation, the President did not only copy Nana Akufo-Addo, but also the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, and by extension the Manhyia Palace. The decision to copy the Asantehene has left many questioning the role the King may have played in the entire saga. There are unconfirmed reports that a meeting may have taken place between Mr. John Mahama and President Akufo-Addo, at which meeting a decision was reached by both transition teams, to allow the former President maintain his official residence as his retirement home. If such an agreement was reached for the Ex-President to keep the residence, then one wonders why the new government is now claiming not to have approved the request for Mr. John Mahama.

  1. Any agreement reached between nana Addo and Mahama over the residency was null and void. Nana had nit Bern sworn in then. The transition team could only report to nana Addo after swearing-in. So Mahama should have obeyed the law and quit as so stated in our transition law, that vacate the premises a day before inauguration. But Mahama failed to adhere to just simple logic.
