All foreign delegations attending the ceremony must submit a negative PCR test result 72 hours prior to arrival in Ghana.
The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Shirley Ayorkor Botchway, and the chairman of the presidential transition team of the Initial Subcommittee said this at a press briefing in Accra on Tuesday.
This is to inform the public that the committee is ready to meet with the elected chairman on Thursday 7. January 2021, to take the oath.
She explained that, in accordance with the 2012 Presidential Transitional Law (Law 845), the committee worked with the parliamentary leadership to ensure the success of the ceremony.
Mrs Bochway said that the elected President and Vice-President will be sworn in before Parliament and in their constituencies in accordance with the 1992 Constitution.
That is why all guests have to be seated at 9.45 a.m. at the latest, so that the ceremony can start at 11.00 a.m. on time.
Mrs Bochway stated that, in accordance with the COWID 19 Protocols, all necessary measures are taken to ensure the health and safety of all participants.
It stated that arrangements for courtesy calls and bilateral meetings had been developed and provided to the respective diplomatic missions in Accra.
In addition, at Terminal 3 of Kotoki International Airport a visitor reception area will be created, with a liaison officer for the security protocol.
After the swearing-in ceremony, all invited heads of state and government are invited for lunch at the Accra International Conference Centre.
We do our best to offer an elegant but affordable ceremony.
If you don’t have an invitation to the ceremony, you can watch it in the comfort of your home, as it will be broadcast live on state television, GTV, and all major television and radio stations, Bochway advised.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Minister of Information, Mr. Pius Enam Hajide, said that on Thursday 7. January, the day of the national constitution, has been declared a public holiday.
He said that about 200 media would be accredited to cover the events, but the most important information for Parliament would come from the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, while all other media would have to use their services.
Mr Khadzhidze announced that all vehicles would be parked in the Place de l’Etoile Noire, but that there would be a shuttle service to transport guests to the parliamentary enclave.
No vehicle without an accredited sticker will be admitted to the parliamentary enclave on the day of the ceremony, he said.
Some 6,000 security officers were deployed to ensure security and maintain public order during the presidential elections.
