Ghana’s electoral commission has announced President John Mahama as the winner of presidential election.
The announcement came hours after the opposition accused the governing party of conspiring with commission staff to fix Friday’s poll.
The electoral commission said that Mr Mahama had won 50.7% against his NPP rival Nana Akufo-Addo on 47.74%.
“Ladies and gentlemen, based on the results given, I declare John Dramani Mahama president-elect,” electoral commission chief Kwadwo Afari-Gyan told journalists.
Ghana, one of the world’s fastest growing economies, is regarded as one of Africa’s most stable democracies.
