John Mahama Is the Winner of Ghana’s Presidential Election
Ghana’s presidential election has been won by incumbent President John Mahama. The electoral commission said that Mr Mahama had won 50.7% against his NPP rival Nana Akufo-Addo on 47.74%.
The announcement came hours after the opposition accused the governing party of conspiring with commission staff to fix Friday’s poll.Police in the capital Accra fired tear gas to disperse opposition protesters from outside the commission’s offices.
Roads around the electoral offices were also barricaded by police as the results were announced. However, on Sunday his party said they had “enough concrete evidence” to prove that he actually won this year’s election.
