On Monday, 7th December, the sitting President, H.E Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo won the polls with 51.59 percent of the votes.

Following the announcement made by the EC, Jean Mensah, the opposition party which is the NDC has rejected the presidential and parliamentary election results after President Nana Akufo-Addo was announced the winner with 51.59% of the vote.

“Overwhelming evidence available makes it impossible for us to accept this spurious and hurried conclusion,” Haruna Iddrisu, a member of parliament for the NDC party said late Wednesday.

The results followed a contentious poll that both candidates had said they were leading based on their parties’ tallies.

NDC’s leader, former president John Mahama, secured 47.36% according to the results announced by the nation’s Electoral Commissioner Boss.

Mahama, 62, charged that Addo, 76, had harnessed the military in a bid to sway the outcome, a claim the government said was false.

“You cannot use the military to overturn some of the results in constituencies that we have won. We will resist any attempts to subvert the sovereign will of Ghanaians,”Mahama said.

With all these which went on, Ghana has won. This statement simply mean, Ghana has had a peaceful elections.

Ghana has had seven peaceful transitions of power since the return  of democracy almost 30 years ago, as post-electoral grievances have until now been pursued through the courts – a rarity in the troubled region.
