President Akufo-Addo sworn in for his second term

On January 7, 2020, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was sworn in as President of the Republic of Ghana.

Re-elected for a second term, President Akufo-Addo took the oath of office at a colorful ceremony in Parliament.

“I Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo do in the name of the almighty swear that I’ll bear true faith and allegiance. I’ll uphold, protect, preserve the sovereignty of Ghana,” he stated while being sworn in by Chief justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah.

The event attracted several heads of states including the President of Guinea, Alpha Conde, Umaro Sissoco Embaló, President of Guinea Bissau, Angola’s Vice President, Bornito de Sousa, Senegalese President Macky Sall among others.

President Akufo-Addo on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) beat the National Democratic Congress (NDC’s) John Dramani Mahama in the 2020 Presidential polls held on December 7.

The final verdict has since been contested by Mr. John Mahama, who argues that the party’s overwhelming evidence available makes it impossible for them to accept the results although some domestic and international observers have said the election was free and fair.

Dr Mahamadu Bawumia was also sworn in as Vice President of Ghana for the second term.

He took his oath of office as Vice President of the Republic of Ghana for a second term at the ceremony in Parliament.

Having partnered Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as his running mate for the 2020 presidential election, Mr Bawumia is once again going to work for another four years with Nana Addo.
