National Democratic Congress (NDC) General Secretary, Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has furnished documents contradicting Vice President Mahamadu Bawumia's revelation that the official Vice Presidential bungalow cost the Ghanaian public purse a hefty $13,9 million.
According to figures on the documents made public by General Secretary Asiedu Nketia, the vice presidential bungalow cost 3.5 million, as opposed to the 13.9 million figure revealed by Vice President Mahamadu Bawumia. The documents are not, on the other hand, specific as to what currency the figures refer to.

Last week Vice President Mahamadu Bawumia expressed incredulous disbelief when he revealed that the erstwhile Mahama led NDC administration spent $13.9 million on the construction of an official vice presidential bungalow.
This revelation is something the Mr. Asiedu Nketia disputes, accusing the recently sworn-in vice president of using the issue to play politics.
According to a former presidential staffer of the previous NDC administration, the true cost of the project stood at about $5.9 million, less than half the amount claimed by Vice President Bawumia.
Last week Saturday, New Patriotic Party (NPP) Communications Director, Nana Akomea, furnished a report from the Architectural and Engineering Services Limited (AESL) which contained - according to him - what looked like exhaustive details on the bungalow's contruction.
