Nana Akufo-Addo Wins 2020 Elections!

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has been declared winner of the 2020 Presidential elections with 51.595%.

The 76 year-old President-elect has been returned to office for a second term following Wednesday’s announcement by the Electoral Commission chairperson, Jean Mensa, almost 48 hours after voting ended on Monday.

Akufo-Addo defeated former President John Mahama, his main challenger by a margin of some 527,798 votes in a contest that involved ten other candidates which included former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings.

The New Patriotic Party flagbearer recorded 6,730, 413 votes from 275 constituencies across the country except Techiman South which is being contested.

His re-election ends Mahama’s bid to return to the Presidency albeit for now.

His running mate, Mahamudu Bawumia keeps his Vice-President role.

He becomes the 5th President of the fourth Republic and the third leader to be chosen for a second term in office. The late Jerry John Rawlings, who passed on barely a month to the elections and John Agyekum Kufour both served two terms.
