“I will swear her in in Ghana’s embassy in Addis Ababa, tomorrow.”

The President who is attending the summit himself would be joined by other African Union Heads of State for the Ordinary Summit in Ethiopia.

Speaking on behalf of the ministers, Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo Marfo said “we know the effort he has made to become president and we know the type of quality he provides on the table. We know his vision as a president and we know he wants to make a difference.

“We will give him the necessary support to make a difference.”
