Ghanaian Presidential Inauguration to Go Ahead

Despite court challenge from opposition


The inauguration of President John Dramani Mahama will go ahead as originally planned January 7, despite a court challenge by the main opposition party, according to a government official.

"The ground preparation, for example, has started two days ahead of time. All is on course and we are ensuring a very smooth wrap-up of the outgoing administration, so we can have an equally, clean transfer or power to the next administration of President Mahama on January 7," said James Agyenim-Boateng, spokesman for the presidential transition team.
