Credible information, emanating from corridors of power, Flagstaff House, indicates that the Executive Secretary to the President, Dr. Raymond Atuguba, is on his way out of the John Mahama-led administration.

The respected lawyer, is said to have exhausted his two-year contractual agreement with the government and has since taken his annual leave, yet to return to his Kanda Office in Accra.

The Herald, cannot say for now, whether his contract will be renewed. Flagstaff House is also yet to officially speak on Dr. Atuguba.

Meanwhile, the Communications Advisor and the Head of the Flagstaff House Communications, Ben Dotse Malor, has returned to work contrary to information in the media
that he has left his job to his base in the United States (US) to continue his UN job.

It is not clear if the distinguished law lecturer, will come back to his job to continue serving President Mahama or will go back to the University of Ghana (UG) to continue his law lecturing profession.

Dr. Atuguba, a member of the opposition People’s National Convention (PNC), is said to be a trusted friend of President Mahama, whose judgment he respect and treats with dignity.

Unconfirmed reports by opposition media have said that Dr. Atuguba alleged exit is because of a frosty relationship with Chief of Staff, Prosper Douglas Bani, and in the event that he does not return to his post, it will be because of the supposed rift.

Another unconfirmed report is that Ambassador Ken Kanda, who is Ghana’s Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) in New York, will replace him.

The Ambassador is already said to be in town gearing up for his new position. He has been around since, November 2014.

Ben Dotse Malor, returned last week Thursday, and was said to be at work yesterday in the Flagstaff House, when The Herald, checked.

The veteran journalist and ex-BBC broadcaster, though left the country to spend some time in the US; he is back to his office.

He is also said to be on contract, and might return depending on the trapping of his UN appointment.
