There have been several calls for President Nana Akufo-Addo to open an investigation into the contract and expenditure of the bungalow after Dr Mahamudu Bawumia 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.

But Kofi Asamoah-Siaw in an interview on Accra-based Citi FM, said "We [the PPP] will not call for an investigation because we think an investigation is a tool to cover-up. What we want are policies to prevent this from happening again in the future. what we want are policies that prevent this from happening again in the future."

"The reason why we don’t want to put too much emphasis [on an investigation] is that you go round in circles and when you finish, you come and put the document before the Attorney General of the Republic. If she doesn’t have the political will to prosecute a member of the political class or elite, nothing will change," he added.
