Change comes to Ghana


After several months of electioneering campaigns, Ghana finally declared presidential election results a couple of hours ago and I was on the streets to see the people jubiliate because the party which promised change to the country has won the polls. Professor John Evans Atta-Mills is the new leader. Here people rejoice at Oxford Street, Osu in the heart of Accra drinking and dancing.
