The 72-year-old president also promised to work with Ghana’s neighbours “to ensure stability on the African continent.”

The new president, a lawyer who served as Ghana’s foreign minister in 2008, vowed to build on the West African country’s economic success.

Akufo-Addo got 53.85 per cent of the votes in Ghana’s September election to defeat incumbent John Mahama who got 44 per cent of the votes.

Report says the peaceful transfer of power from ex-president Mahama was drawing special attention.
