General News of Wednesday, 11 January 2017Source: ClassfmonlineMahama: I never said I’d buy bungalowThere were claims of Mahama's wish to buy the state residence following his retirementFormer President John Mahama has said he “never” expressed interest in buying the state bungalow in which he stayed in during his tenure of office. I believe that this controversy is absolutely not needed in these early days as the government settles into office. Per Ghana’s 1992 Constitution, Mr Mahama was supposed to vacate the property a day before the investiture of President Nana Akufo-Addo. While the outgone government’s side of the transition team said it reached an agreement with the new president’s team to allow Mr Mahama to continue staying in the property, the new government said there was no such deal. Mr Mahama’s critics say his earlier quest to keep the property was unlawful.
