"I am only putting on record that the NDC government under President John Mahama did not approve of 13.9 million dollars to be used to put up the Vice President’s accommodation, hence the allegation is not true," he said.

Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has revealed that he was shocked to hear that the government of former President Mahama approved 13.9 million dollars for an official residence for  Vice President.

He said the residence was not sole-sourced. He noted that, in his view he did not believe it when he was told the price for the house, which, was "most likely sole-sourced" by the erstwhile administration.
