President John Mahama is taking president-elect Nana Akufo-Addo, on a familiarisation tour of the flagstaff House, seat of government.

The two  are currently taking a walk through the various offices of the buoyant edifice, which was constructed during the tenure of former President John Kufuor.

This is the second time an outgoing Ghanaian President is embarking on such a gesture, after former president Kufuor ushered in the late Professor John Mills in 2009 when he won power.

The Flagstaff House was reconstructed and originally named Golden Jubilee House by the Kufuor administration in November 2008.

In January 2009, the incoming government of President Mills moved the office of the president back to Osu Castle and later changed the sign in front of the building back to its original name, claiming that the previous government had not used a Legislative Instrument to effect the change as required by law.

The incoming  administration led by the former attorney general will be sworn in on Saturday January 7.
