Information reaching Adepanews indicates that President Akufo-Addo’s swearing for his second term in office is anticipated to take place at the premises of Parliament instead of the traditional venue, the Black Star Square.

The move is in adherence to the 1992 constitution, Article 57(3) which said that “Before assuming office the President shall take and subscribe before Parliament the oath of allegiance and the presidential oath set out in the Second Schedule to this Constitution”, despite this provision in the constitution, lack of space to accommodate huge spectators and diplomatic corps makes it difficult for the exercise to take place in Parliament.
