President Nana Akufo-Addo will be sworn into office for his second term inside Parliament on January 7, 2021 and not at the Independence Square as it has consistently been the situation, Deputy Minister of Information Pius Enam Hadzide has declared.
He said the choice was taken by the 2020 official progress group.
It follows a solicitation made by Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu during the kickoff of office under the Physical Infrastructure Projects of Parliament on November 3, 2020.
With emphasis to the media presentations concerning the swearing-in of the president elect of Ghana, Hon. Hadzide stated: “The Transitional Team is vehemently capable on productive decision implementation about the solicitation of the Parliament of Ghana, as disclosed by Hon. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu and has eventually impacted that the swearing-in of the newly elected President Akufo-Addo on the seventh of January 2021, will be effectively enforced before Parliament
The Majority Leader, at that point, mentioned that, resulting swearing-in of President-chosen of the Republic of Ghana occur in Parliament and before Parliament, as per Ghanaian laws and worldwide practice.
With regards to this, the implementation plan policy follows a solicitation endorsed by the Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu under the Physical Infrastructure Projects of Parliament.
Tending to a press preparation, Mr Hadzide stated: “The Transition Team has well thought about the solicitation of the Parliament of Ghana, as expressed by Hon. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu and has subsequently concluded that the swearing-in of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on the seventh of January 2021, will occur before Parliament and under the Parliamentary territory of Ghana
Eventually, “the Inauguration sub-council is working with Parliament to guarantee an effective and COVID-objection initiation,” he added.
Due to the decision implementation policy of the swearing-in of president elect, the general public will be addressed on the relevance and effectiveness of such political enforcement.
