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.

The new president of Ghana acknowledging cheers from the teeming crowd as his inauguration ceremony got intense.
