Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has been sworn in as Ghana’s president for another four-year term.
Heads of state from across Africa and dignitaries watch him took the oath of office at a ceremony in Accra on Thursday, January 7, 2021.
Akufo-Addo was reelected in the December 2020 polls.
He defeated former President John Dramani Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the keenly contested polls garnering 51.302% of the ballots against the latter’s 47.359%.
Mahama rejected the outcome, arguing the verdict was “stolen”, filing a petition at the Supreme Court to challenge the results.
