The incumbent president Akuffo Ado has won the presidential election to serve a second term

Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo has been re-elected after a tightly contested election on Monday.

Mr Akufo-Addo obtained 51.6% of the vote, compared with 47.4% won by his main rival, ex-President John Mahama, official results showed.

Mr Mahama has not yet conceded defeat. It was the third time the two politicians had faced each other in a presidential election.

Ghana has a reputation for being one of the most stable democracies in Africa.

Results in the parliamentary elections have yet to be announced, but are expected to be very close as well.

There are wild celebrations across the country after official results showed Mr Akufo-Addo had won a second term, reports the BBC’s Thomas Naadi from the capital, Accra.
