Nana Akufo-Addo was sworn in Saturday as the new president of Ghana after winning the election a month ago.

Akufo-Addo, 72, defeated incumbent John Dramani Mahama in an election largely focused on the country’s stalling economy.

The White House has directed all U.S. ambassadors who are political appointees to resign their posts as of Inauguration Day, January 20.

State Department spokesman John Kirby confirmed that ambassadors who are career members of the U.S. Foreign Service — about 70 percent of the top American envoys abroad — were not asked to offer their resignations.

“The politically appointed ambassadors are being pulled back because they are the representatives of the outgoing administration” of President Barack Obama, according to the president of the American Academy of Diplomacy, Ronald Neumann.

The New York Times said the order appeared to break with decades of precedent by indicating that affected ambassadors would not get even the briefest extension of their appointments, for reasons such as completing a child’s school term or dealing with family health issues.

A senior member of Trump’s transition team told the Times there was no ill will in the move, describing it as a simple matter of ensuring that Obama’s overseas envoys leave the government on schedule, just as thousands of political aides at the White House and in federal agencies must do.
