Nana Akuffo Addo projected winner of 2016 presidential elections in Ghana

Akufo-Addo will not debate a ‘flip-flop’ President – Hamid

Nana Akuffo Addo, NPP presidential candidate

The wind of change that is blowing across the world has caught up with Ghana and can project that NPP presidential candidate Nana Akuffo Addo, running for the third time, will win the 2016 presidential elections in Ghana.

This is based on provisional results released so far. The electoral commission is yet to confirm any results released but reporters on ground and party representatives have provided provisional results which looks bad for the sitting president Mr. John Mahama and his NDC party. NPP is doing much better than they did four years ago in almost all constituencies declared so far. They are polling over 60% in the Eastern region and over 75% in the Ashanti region, their strongholds. This is much better than what they did four years ago. Provisional results also indicate strong showings for the NPP in other regions that they are losing. Initial signs are that NPP benefited from huge turnout of voters in their strongholds whiles surprisingly voter turnout was very low in NDC strongholds.

In what is shaping up as a goodnight for the opposition party, NPP is also likely to decisively sweep parliament, knocking out prominent incumbent NDC parliamentarians, according to our reporters.
