Mahama is supposed to have vacated the bungalow which is located at Cantonments in Accra, but he has declined to do so in expectation that the president would approve his request.
Mahama has used the accommodation since he first became vice-president in 2008.
Now, according to Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, the editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide, Akufo-Addo has agreed that Mahama can keep the building.
The development has sparked outrage on social media, with many Ghanaians threatening to punish the new government is the decision is not reversed.
Meanwhile, the new vice-president, Mahamudu Bawumia, is expected to take up residence at the Australia House, which was previously occupied by former Vice-President Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur.
Efforts are also underway to secure an official house of former President J.A. Kufuor who has still not received one since he left office in 2008.
