Claim: Social media users and online portals claim their preferred candidates, John Mahama or Nana Akufo-Addo, have been declared winner of the 2020 presidential election.
False. The country is still waiting for the results of the presidential elections. The Electoral Commission has not declared John Mahama, Nana Akufo-Addo or any other candidate winner of the just concluded election in Ghana.
Electorates, following the casting of ballots on December 7th, are awaiting the declaration of the winner of the presidential election.
The institution mandated to call the election, the Electoral Commission (EC), has not declared the presidential results.
The chairperson of the EC, Mrs. Jean Mensa, gave an update regarding the collation of the 2020 presidential election results citing rain and travel challenges at some polling stations as one of the reasons for the delay.
