Sources close to the former administration confirmed to the Daily Graphic that the former Chief of Staff, Mr Julius Debrah, signed a report of an inventory conducted in the residence by officials of the administration and the Public Works Department (PWD) on Monday, February 6, to signify the official handing over of the house.

Security personnel at a post in the house confirmed that Mr Mahama had packed out of the house, but could not tell exactly when he did.

Reports further revealed that media personnel, who were at the residence of Mr Mahama to observe a tour by the Public Works Department and some officials of the past administration to authenticate the inventory report, were denied the opportunity.

The PWD officials and the officers of the past administration, including Mr Debrah also declined to speak to journalists after the inventory tour.

Meanwhile, the reports revealed that security presence was felt as security personnel were still at post discharging their duties.

It was also observed that people and vehicles used the street in front of the house as a thorough fare without having to go through the hitherto strict scrutiny because neither a president nor a vice president was currently living in it.

Mr Mahama is reported to have made a request to keep the official house in which he was living as his retirement home, which was declined by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuf-Addo

However, he is entitled to a retirement home.
