Update: Mahama moves to Flagstaff House on Thursday

Credible Information gathered by indicates that President John Mahama will move to the Flagstaff House on Thursday.
A statement signed by Information Minister Mahama Ayariga said: "Government wishes to announce that the seat of Government will officially move from the Castle -Osu to the Flag Staff House on Thursday, 7th February, 2013."
"This means that President John Dramani Mahama will from Thursday, 7th February, 2013 conduct formal government business from the Flag Staff House.
"There will be a short ceremony to commemorate the movement at 10 am at the Flag Staff House," the statement added.
The multi-million edifice had been left for over four years as the late President Mills declined to relocate there upon the advice of his security chiefs.
It is however unclear if the President would also move into the official presidential residence located within the compound of the Flagstaff House immediately to make way for his current official residence to be prepared for the Vice President.
The Vice President, Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, late last year moved into his office at the Flagstaff House after he was sworn-in.
