Akufo-Addo leaves for Ivory Coast, Guinea and London

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will leave Ghana today, Monday, 14 December 2020, for Abidjan for the inauguration of Ivorian President-elect Alassane Ouattara.

Mr Ouattara was reelected to a third term after securing 94.27% of the vote in the Ivorian election on October 31.

The two leading opposition figures in that election called on their supporters to boycott the vote.

On Tuesday, 15 December 2020, Nana Akufo-Addo will leave for Guinea also for the inauguration of President Alpha Condé.

The 82-year-old polled 59.5% of the votes to secure his third term.

Although his opponent, Cellou Dalein Diallo, contested the result, alleging large-scale fraud the court ruled in Condé’s favour declaring him the legitimate winner of the polls.

President Akufo-Addo from Guinea will then continue to London before returning to Accra, Ghana.

This was disclosed by information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah in a tweet.
