President John Mahama has reacted to rumours that he spent the last Christmas in Dubai but has chosen to celebrate this year’s in Bole because he lost power.
Since the President visited his hometown for this year’s Christmas festivities Sunday, many have suggested on social media platforms that the outgoing leader has chosen a humble place for the occasion because he is out of power and needs a place to feel belonged.
But in a tweet, Mr Mahama responded to a critic by saying : “ ..a year ago today, President Mahama was in Bole and not Dubai”.
@Aye_Asem_OOO a year ago today, President Mahama was in Bole n not Dubai.

Meanwhile, the President was given rousing welcome by his kinsmen in Bole in the Northern region as he arrived to observe Christmas there on Sunday.
Scores of people had lined the streets to his home amid chants “ We want John” as his convoy drove the family through to his residence.
