Former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hannah Tetteh has cast a sneer at the government for its refusal to allow Former President Mahama keep his old residence as part of his 'retirement package'.
Government has refused a request sent by the Former Chief of Staff of the Former President, Julius Debrah for Former President Mahama to keep his residence as President.
The residence, bungalow No.3, situated at Prestige Link, Cantonments in Accra, has been designated as official accommodation for the country’s Vice-Presidents but was still inhabited by the former President becoming President of Ghana.
This has rendered Vice President Dr Bawumia 'homeless' and has been compelled to lodge at 'Australia house'.
In a tweet via her personal Twitter handle, Hannah Tetteh described Australia House, the official residence of former Vice President Amissah Arthur as bigger than where former President Mahama currently resides and shared images of the place as prove.
"Australia House, official residence of former V. President which is bigger than where former President Mahama currently resides" she tweeted.
Currently, Former President Mahama is entitled to 40 percent of his monthly salary as an allowance for his accommodation and staff which includes a steward, cook and gardener.
