Ghana Inagurates New President Today

Nana Akufo-Addo is to be sworn in as Ghana’s new president on Saturday after beating incumbent leader John Dramani Mahama in elections last month.





The 72-year-old former human rights lawyer will take the oath of office at a ceremony in Independence Square in central Accra before more than 6,000 guests and members of the public.

Some 11 heads of state from across Africa are expected to attend, as well as the outgoing president, and former leaders John Rawlings and John Kufuor.

Police in the capital have vowed to enforce tight security during the inauguration, with major roads in and around the venue cordoned off.

Traders have already set up their stalls nearby hoping to cash in on the ceremony by selling Ghana flags and paraphernalia from Akufo-Addo’s New Patriotic Party.

Akufo-Addo’s electoral victory — and the peaceful transition of power — underlined Ghana’s position as a beacon of stability in an often turbulent region.

This should serve as a lesson to African leaders. You will always be accountable. Mahama will go down as the most corrupt and most incompetent president of all time in Ghana's history! See as God has just shown Mahama. Nana Addo won in 2012 and Mahama rigged the elections. Mahama called Nana a beggar. Mahama said Ghanaians have short term memories and therefore will vote for him. Well, he got 44%, the lowest percentage any incumbent President has ever had whereas Nana had 54%. God is just so wonderful! Upon the $65 million Mahama wasted on campaign
