The government says the swearing-in of president-elect, Nana Akufo-Addo will take place at the Parliament House instead of Independence Square.

Deputy Information Minister, Pius Enam Hadzide who addressed a government press briefing said the decision is based on a request made by the leadership of Parliament in November 2020.

He added that, all covid19 safety protocols will be followed for the inauguration to be held at the new location.

The deputy Minister said the transition team is working closely with the leadership of Parliament to ensure that the inauguration is successfully held.

The Majority Leader in November said Parliament has resolved to discontinue the practice of swearing in newly elected president at the Independence Square instead of Parliament.
