Watch video: After one year in office, President Mahama meets the press today

President John Mahama will today Tuesday interact with the media at the Flagstaff house. This is part of activities to mark the First year of the first term of the president.

The meeting which is scheduled for 11 am today at the banquet hall of the flagstaff house will allow selected media practitioners including the presidential press corps, pose questions to the president about his governance.

Officials at the presidency say provisions have been made in this year’s presidential media interaction for specialized practitioners such as sports and showbiz reporters in a response to concerns raised in previous meet the press series hosted by late president Atta Mills.

Details of the other activities this week to mark the anniversary are however not yet known.
