President Nana Akuffo Addo was sworn in as president of the republic of Ghana.
He was sworn in as directed by the 1992 constitution that the presidential candidate who secured 50 + 1 % would emerge president and should accordingly be sworn in exactly a month after the election.
Amidst boycott by the minority in Parliament and delays, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo was sworn in by the Chief Justice on the 7th January, 2021.
In a social media post to thank his supporters and well-wishers, the president said some things that some people consider a shade to former president Mahama.
In the post, he said he follows the footsteps of two former presidents, Jerry John Rawlings and John Agyekum Kuffour who completed their two successive terms of office.
A section of the public consider this as a swipe at the former president because he was unable to win his second term.
More so, the former president contested with him for a second term but lost to him, even though he (Mahama) is challenging the validity of the electoral results declared by the Electoral Commission at the Supreme Court.
Do you think this is a shot to the former president or he was sincerely just acknowledging the two first former presidents of the 4th republic?
He posted….. “I follow in the exalted footsteps of two of my predecessors, the 1st and 2nd Presidents of the 4th Republic, their Excellencies Jerry John Rawlings and John Agyekum Kufuor, who served two successive terms in office. I, cannot, therefore, take this honour and privilege bestowed on my modest self lightly, and I thank Almighty God and the Ghanaian people, who, by an emphatic margin, renewed my mandate in office for four more years, in the elections of 7th December.”
