Minister of Information, Mustapha Hamid, has asked Former President John Dramani Mahama to remain calm as the government will soon cater to his needs as enshrined in the provisions for ex-presidents.
According to him, the government is now under pressure to cater to the needs of Former President John Kufuor as his issues with his accommodation were not taken care of by the previous government.
“Even ex-President Kufuor has not been given his accommodation yet since 2009 when he left office. That, therefore, puts the pressure of settling two former presidents on us, and they had only one president to provide for and couldn’t complete it. So they should be patient with us, we are pleading with them”, he said on Accra-based Joy FM.
Mr Hamid has, therefore, urged the Office of former President Mahama to collaborate with the office of the Chief of Staff to have the issues addressed.
“The office of former president Mahama should write to the Chief of Staff to pay for those he is working with and that will be done,” he said.
