Ghanaians are in anxious state as they patiently await the declaration of the 2016 Presidential election results.

Meanwhile, politicians in the West African country are already in jubilation mood with the hope and assurance that their favourite candidate would emerge as the winner of the election.

The election which is an high-stake race between incumbent John Mahama and rival Nana Akufo-Addo, is seen as a litmus test of stability for one of Africa’s most secure democracies.


However, result counting is expected to start immediately after polls were shut by 5 p.m. (1700 GMT), but with 29,000 polling stations,  the official results from the country’s 275 constituencies across the 10 regions is not expected to be announced until today by the Chairperson, Ghana Electoral Commission, Nana Akufo-Addo.

Going by the initial provisional results tweeted yesterday by the Electoral Commission, neither of the candidate is gaining upper hand over the other, the tweet placed the two contenders on a closed margin as Mahama scored 62, 930 votes and Akufo-Addo 62, 220 votes.
