President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has praised his predecessor John Dramani Mahama for his conduct in the face of controversy surrounding his settlement.
He said the former president’s conduct during the controversy has been a credit to the nation and Ghanaians must be thankful to God for such blessings.
Mr Mahama withdrew a letter requesting he is allowed to stay in his official Cantonment residence in line with the recommendations for his emolument after leaving office.
However, public outcry forced him to take a u-turn over the issue last week.
The development now leaves government to find a suitable accommodation for him after he packed out of the Cantonment residence.
Addressing congregants of the Accra Ridge Church Sunday, President Akufo-Addo also congratulated his predecessor for supervising a smooth transfer of power after the elections.
He told the congregation Ghanaians to have to show gratitude to the former president for following in the “worthy footsteps of his illustrious predecessors ex-president’s Jerry John Rawlings and John Agyekum Kufour and supervised a peaceful transition of power.”
