“There cannot be, and there has not been, any private construction within the Presidential household. What is referred to as a warehouse is actually a storehouse for the use of the Office of the President, and constructed by the State.” – Flagstaff House
The Office of the President issued this statement Wednesday denying claims by the minority in Parliament that first lady Lordina Mahama owns and operates a warehouse at the seat of government.
Minority spokesperson on legal and constitutional affairs, Joe Osei Owusu, reportedly accused the first lady of building a privately-funded warehouse at the Flagstaff House to promote a private initiative.
The Office of the President, however, said the claim is false and described it as “mischievous.”
