Founder and former President of the African University College of Education, Kojo Yankah, is demanding that former President Mahama be prevented from coveting a state bungalow he occupied as Vice President.
The former president is reported to have refused to move out of the apartment he occupied as Vice President and later, President. Former President Mahama insists he has been given the ‘all-clear’ to possess the apartment as part of his end of service benefit as president, a claim that has been refuted by the Akufo-Addo led administration.
But even before the dust could settle on that brouhaha, a former MP in the Rawlings administration is calling on the Akufo-Addo-led administration to desist from endorsing the action saying “The precedence is dangerous and should not be allowed to stand.”
According to Kojo Yankah, ‘It is wrong for the ex-President to convert his official residence into a personal one’ adding that an approval from Parliament does nothing to make the situation right.
