Five presidential candidates who took part in the December 7 presidential election have conceded defeat and congratulated their fellow candidate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party for “winning” the race although the Electoral Commission is yet to announce the certified results.
It is left with President John Dramani Mahama, who is the candidate of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) to follow suit.
In the early hours of Thursday, 8 December, Dr Edward Mahama of the People’s National Convention (PNC) became the first to concede and congratulate Mr Akufo-Adddo stating on his tweeter handle that: “I will like to congratulate Nana Akufo-Addo of the NPP for winning the 2016 general elections based on my projections. I call on my other contenders to do same especially the sitting President to concede gracefully. This is a victory for all Ghana.”
