After a rancorous and highly-publicized ejection from a state facility which he intended using as his post retirement office, ex-President John Agyekum Kufuor has been offered a two-bed room bungalow at the Cantonments suburb of Accra.
Ex-President Kufuor dropped the hint during an interview with Citi FM’s Abdul Karim Natogma, while he was in South Africa as guest of honour for the 14th Africa Highway conference in Rhodes University in Grahamstown.
It is not known whether he has acquiesced to the offer which described as a two-bedroom facility located in the high-notched residential area of Cantonments.
However, Mr. Kufuor’s spokesperson, Frank Agyekum said the facility could only be used for office accommodation, saying that they are still in consultation with the government to finalise issues. “As it is now, it remains a residential accommodation. It needs to be turned into a proper office accommodation, so there have to be renovation taking place in there.
But yes a place has been offered, the President has been offered, the President has seen it…and he thinks it is quite ok for him, Frank Agyekum told Joy FM. Mr. Kufuor’s other entitlements have not been attended to by the Mills administration. According to Mr. Agyekum, aside the office accommodation being prepared for the former President, “all other issues are still outstanding.
