Nana Akufo-Addo wins Ghana's Presidential Election - Electoral Commission

The Electoral Commission of Ghana on Friday evening declared opposition candidate Nana Akufo Addo winner of the 2016 presidential election.

He polled 53.85% of the total presidential votes cast to win the election, Electoral Commission boss, Charlotte Osei said.

Ghana's President John Mahama has conceded defeat in Wednesday's national election to opposition leader Nana Akufo-Addo, several sources said on Friday.
The concession quelled tensions at the end of a day in which independent voting tallies showing an Akufo-Addo victory in the presidential and parliamentary election had been broadly accepted but there were no official results.
