But these lands, according to the Minister of Defence, Dominic Nitiwul, are embroiled in dispute and were thus not advisable for the former president to occupy.

According to him, the lands in question were expected to serve as a boundary between civilians and the military and so it was not advisable for the former Commander-in-Chief to occupy.

Speaking at his ministry's turn at the Meet the Press series on Thursday, Mr Nitiwul explained that though there was nothing wrong for Mr Mahama to be on military lands, his use such of 'disputed' lands sent wrong signals.

“I am advising [ex-President Mahama] that if I were him, I will not live there”, he told journalists.

He however failed to specify which parcels of land he was referring to only to point out that above everything else, that Mr Mahama cannot be forced out of the land.
