The helicopter in which the president as well as his wife, Lordina, was traveling had to make a precautionary landing at Apatrampa, a suburb of Kumasi, due to bad weather.
The Ghana Air Force MH-17 later flew the first couple back to Accra safely.
Taking to Twitter after the eventful flight, President Mahama lauded the dexterity of the pilots especially a female at the controls.
“I feel great pride for our armed forces,” he tweeted.
“Great intuition shown by our heli pilots. I feel so proud. And at the controls was a woman.”
