Ghana's new President, Vice-President sworn into office

US President Barack Obama has announced Linda Thomas-Greenfield to lead his Presidential Delegation to Ghana to attend the January 7 inauguration of Nana Akufo-Addo as the President of Ghana.

While the United States holds intelligence hearings about outside meddling in its election, and the president-elect tweets to remind all the "losers" and "enemies" that he won, Ghana prepares to peacefully welcome its new president.

Earlier this week, Mahama attributed the struggles seen during his presidency to "strong headwinds" that caused Ghana's currency to falter.

On January 7, thousands of officials and guests from across Africa watched Akufo-Addo taking the oath of office at the Independence Square in central Accra, Ghana's capital.

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.

"We will reduce taxes to recover the momentum of our economy", he said. Ghanaians have ever been a restless, questing, hopeful people. But checks by the online news platform showed that it came from George Bush's 2001 inaugural.

Akufo-Addo and his party have reportedly said they will review the appointments. "Let us all resolve to pitch in and work hard and look after, not only ourselves but one another".

He thanked ex president Mahama for his "elegant acceptance" of the election results which he says will "receive the approval of history".

Some of the Presidents at the ceremony were, Gnassigbe Eyadama (Togo), Alassane Ouattara (Cote'de'voire), Republic of Iran, Mauritius, Gabon, Benin Republic, and many other friendly countries which sent representatives.
