Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) which happens to be the main opposition party in the Ghana Presidential election has been elected by Ghanaians as their new president.
Mr. Akufo-Addo, 72, who was running for the office for the third time, comfortably edged out incumbent, John Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) by almost 10 points.
The Electoral Commission of Ghana (ECG) tweeted late on Friday, December 9 two days after the election, that Mr. Akufo-Addo was the victor in the largely peaceful poll.
“We declare Nana Akufo-Addo as President-Elect of our Ghana. God bless Ghana. Thank you,” ECG tweeted.
