Majority leader in parliament, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu says former president Mahama is not justified to occupy his official residence "meant for vice president, Mahamadu Bawumia".
In a fierce interview with Joy FM in Accra, the majority leader argued that parliament NEVER gave Mahama the go ahead to continue occupying the bungalow.
“If the President requires that; I think the relevant authority is that he may have to dialogue with the current [NPP] administration. Parliament, I must emphasize did not say that where he is now, should be the residential facility to be given to him,” he stressed.
Meanwhile, John Mahama has requested that the ownership of a government bungalow be transferred into his name. In a letter signed by former Chief of Staff Julius Debrah, Mahama requested ownership of the building that has served as the official residence of the country’s Vice Presidents since 2000.
