Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has said President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will soon start work in his second term in office after he was re-elected as president of Ghana in the December 7 general elections.
President Akufo-Addo polled a total of 6,730,413 votes, representing 51.59 per cent to beat closest contender John Dramani Mahama, who polled a total of 6,214,889 votes, in Monday’s presidential elections.
Returning Officer of the 2020 Presidential Elections Jean Adukwei Mensa, who is also the Chair of the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC), declared the incumbent president winner of the polls based on over 13 million votes from 274 our of 275 constituencies.
One constituency, Techiman South, which has a little over 100,000 total votes is still outstanding because results from there are in dispute.
But the EC Chair said even if all of those votes were given to John Mahama, it will still not change the import of the results.
In a tweet on Thursday December 10, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, who was also re-elected Member of Parliament for Ofoase-Ayirebi constituency said “The last 36 hours have been hectic. In the end Ghana won. President Akufo-Addo will soon start work on Round 2. To God be the glory.”
