Government has announced that only the state broadcaster Ghana Broadcasting Corporation would be allowed access to the main chamber of parliament to cover the inauguration of President-elect Nana Addo Dankwa AKufo-Addo.

It further announced that a media village has been erected at the precinct of parliament to host other media platforms, due to space and security reasons.

President Akufo-Addo will be inaugurated and sworn in on Thursday, January 7, in Parliament due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

He is the second sitting president after John Agyekum Kufuor to be sworn-in, in the same manner after being re-elected.

Speaking to Francis Abban on the Morning Starr Tuesday Deputy Information Minister Pius Hadzide noted: “media personnel will operate within the media village that has been erected in the precinct of parliament.”

Meanwhile, Foreign Affairs Minister Shirley Ayorkor-Botchway indicated that “the inauguration committee has been working with parliament towards ensuring a successful event.”

President Akufo-Addo is currently delivering his last State of the Nation address for his four-ear stewardship before his new government is formed.
