Former President John Mahama has spoken after his party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), predicted that he is going to win the 2020 elections.
Mahama faced off with President Nana Akufo-Addo in what is a repeat of the 2016 presidential elections.
The NDC has projected their candidate as an impending winner with the party citing an impressive showing in the parliamentary elections as a precursor to Mahama's victory.
In a statement on his social media pages, Mahama who seems to agree with the projection of victory by his party has thanked Ghanaians for "voting for change."
"Thank you for voting for change and giving the NDC a working majority in the next Parliament. Thank you, Ghana," he wrote.
It is worthy to note that the proclamations by the NDC are mere projections from the party
The Electoral Commission which is mandated to declare winners of Ghana's elections is yet to release any official results.
The NPP earlier reacted to the NDC's press conference claiming to have flipped 36 of its seats.
According to the NPP's General Secretary John Boadu, the party is winning majority in parliament and retaining the presidential seat.
John Boadu claimed that President Nana Akufo-Addo has a commanding 700,000 lead over John Mahama out of results from 87% of polling stations.
