Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh has reported in a previous story that a security analyst has argued that the seat of the Jubilee House is a very dangerous place for the president to stay in.

Adib Saani, who belongs to the JatiKay Centre for Human Security and Peace Building said the seat of the presidency, which is located at the heart of Accra and also a few meters away from the Kotoka International Airport, shares walls with embassies and other residential areas.

The security analyst believes this could facilitate spying activities from these embassies.
