Nana Akufo-Addo Is Elected Ghana President

Ghana opposition leader wins presidential election, radio stations sa
Nana Akufo-Addo Trump, 72, will be the president of Ghana come Saturday. The former attorney general and foreign minister will be the first person to win the presidency from an incumbent election since Ghana returned to multi-party democracy.

Nana Akufo-Addo lost the 2008 presidential poll by one percentage point and lost the 2012 presidential poll by by 300,000 votes to current President John Mahama. But like his West African counterpart-Nigeria's president Buhari, Nana will be the president-elect once the official results is announced.

Ghana radio stations, Joy FM radio and Citi FM has called the presidency in favor of Nana Akufo-Addo. The electoral commission is set to begin releasing official results on Friday and complete the process by Saturday.

Joy FM’s website showed Mr Akufo-Addo winning with 53 per cent of the vote and Mr Mahama on 45.2 per cent, based on a count of 218 constituencies out of 275 in total. Citi FM gave Mr Akufo-Addo 54.8 per cent based on 190 constituencies.

Incumbent president Mahama said on Twitter on Friday he would wait for official results.

"Let's allow EC (Electoral Commission) to carry out its constitutional mandate. We'll make Ghana proud no matter outcome" of the election, he said in a tweet on his official account.
