A one time Attorney-General of Ghana and former Member of Parliament, representing Akim Abuakwa South Constituency, Nana Dankwa Akufo-Addo has emerged President-Elect of Ghana, announced by the EC late Friday evening after the recently held Ghana’s Presidential and Parliamentary elections.

With a wide margin of 4,713,277 party votes by the incumbent John Dramani Mahama at 44.40% representing the NDC, to 5,716,026 party votes by Nana Akufo-Addo at 53.85% representing the NPP, it became as easy ride for the President-Elect, Nana Akufo-Addo to win.

President John Mahama according to confirmed sources of NaijaOnlineTV had since called the President-Elect, congratulating him for his victory, thereby conceding defeat peacefully.

More reports gathered by NaijaOnlineTV revealed that former UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan who is a Ghanaian had earlier before the EC’s announcement compelled major participants at the elections not to waste time in accepting defeat in order to maintain peace and stability in the West African country.

The President-Elect will therefore be taking office on the 7th of January, 2017.
Born on the 29th of March 1944, the Ghanaian politician contested the office of President for the third time before winning. Nana Akufo-Addo had contested Presidential elections in Ghana for the record in 2008, 2012 and 2016 respectively under the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The President-Elect of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo is from Kyebi in the Eastern Region of Ghana and is married to Rebecca Akufo-Addo, while both had five daughters and five grandchildren together.
