Ghana swears in new president

Jan 8 - Ghana has sworn in opposition leader John Atta Mills as President in a democratic transfer of power that won plaudits from around the world.

President John Kufuor stepped down after serving the maximum two four-year terms in office in the West African state. His party's, chosen successor lost a cliff-hanger presidential election run-off to Mills last week by less than 0.5 percent.

Ghana is one of Africa's most attractive investment destinations.
