President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has been declared the winner of the 2020 presidential election.
The President will have an additional four-year mandate to govern the people of Ghana.
He beat eleven other candidates, including his arch-rival John Dramani Mahama of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), to secure a second term in what the EU’s Election Observation team has described as a generally free and fair election, albeit with isolated incidents of violence, some of which led to the loss of lives.
Declaring Nana Akufo-Addo the winner of Monday’s polls, the Returning Officer for the presidential polls, Mrs Jean Mensa, who is the Chairman of the Electoral Commission, said President Akufo-Addo won by 51.59 per cent to beat Mr Mahama who had 47.36 per cent of the total valid votes cast.
This is Akufo-Addo’s second electoral victory against former President John Mahama.llq
