Ghana's President John Dramani Mahama arrives on January 6, 2013 to worship at the Assemblies of God Church ahead of tomorrow's inauguration in Accra. The inauguration of President John Dramani Mahama will go ahead as originally planned on January 7, despite a court challenge by the main opposition party, according to a government official. The official discloses that 18 government delegations, including 11 heads of state, have confirmed their participation of the swearing-in ceremony. But the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), citing alleged voting fraud, has refused to be part of the ceremony after rejecting Mahama’s election victory.
