The Sub Committee of the transitional team responsible for the planning of the event said arrangements are set to ensure a colourful ceremony.

Meanwhile, the Greater Accra Regional Communications Director of the NPP, Alhaji Yussif Fofana says the inauguration of President-elect Nana Akufo Addo is a day for all Ghanaians and not for one political party.
