We absolutely love it when we look back at the week in photographs. This week we have had the rare privilege of 7 days filled mostly with good cheer. President Nana Akufo-Addo was sworn in yesterday as the new Ghanaian President, former minister of enviroment is expectedly having a good time at her new job as a UN Deputy Secretary-General and the Redeemed Christian Church has positioned itself for a lifetime of continuous existence.
