Nana Mahama

Ghana’s President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has been re-elected, the Electoral Commission (EC) announced on Wednesday.

Nana Akufo-Addo, 76, polled 6,730,413 votes representing 51.6 per cent to beat main opposition leader Mr John Dramani Mahama, 62, of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who polled 6,214,889 votes representing 47.4 per cent in the Monday, December 7’s presidential poll, Mrs Jean Adukwei Mensa, Chairperson and Returning Officer of the Presidential elections, said.

This is the third time the two leaders have met in elections after 2012 and 2016.

Mr Mahama secured victory in the 2012 Presidential election but failed to secure a second-term in office after he was trounced by Nana Akufo-Addo by more than one million votes.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
