Ghana: President Mahama to be inaugurated

John Dramani Mahama is set to take the oath of office Monday as Ghana's next president with regional and world leaders in attendance following his narrow win in elections last month. The opposition is disputing the result.


Mahama, the former vice-president who took the helm in July following the unexpected death of President John Atta Mills, was elected with an absolute majority of 50.7 percent in the December poll. His main challenger, Nana Akufo-Addo, won 47.7%, according to the country's electoral body. (AP)
