Presidential inauguration at Accra, Ghana

Presidential inauguration at Accra, Ghana

There’s 2 political parties running for election in Ghana- NDC (National Democratic Congress) and NPP( New Patriotic Party). John Mahama-who represented NDC, won the presidential election and was inaugurated on Jan 7th, 2013. I am not into politic but it’s for sure a fun day for me to be at the inauguration ceremony:)

Everyone was dressing like a royalty to attend this ceremony.
