President John Mahama has reacted to tweets mocking him for spending Christmas in his hometown of Bole in the Northern region.
A flurry of tweets have been flying about mocking the President for choosing to celebrate this year’s Christmas at his Bole village.
They claim the president made the choice only after he suffered electoral defeat at the December polls.
Many of the tweets suggested that he has indeed fallen from grace to grass because only last year he spent Christmas in Dubai.
But in tweet, President Mahama has dismissed the claims, stating that he was not in Dubai for Christmas last year. Rather, he was in his constituency on Christmas Day in 2015.
The fact is that President Mahama spent his Christmas holidays in Dubai in 2013.
President John Mahama met Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of the UAE in Dubai whilst there.
He left Accra on Monday, December 23, 2013 for the United Arab Emirates, where he and his family spent the Christmas and the New Year holidays.
For that trip, the then NPP General Secretary Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie criticised the president for ‘abandoning’ this country at a time of economic difficulty.
