Joy News TV has projected President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the winner of the 2020 presidential elections.
According to the station, results they have gathered from 270 constituencies gives the NPP's Akufo-Addo an unassailable lead over John Mahama.
From the projections, Akufo-Addo has won 6,640,809 from the 270 constituencies while Mahama has won 6,121, 817 votes.
With the lead of over 518,000 votes, "it is statistically impossible for John Mahama to achieve 50% + 1 to win, " Joy News' Evans Mensah stated.
This is because the total number of votes from the remaining five constituencies amounts to 184, 576 votes and going by the average voter turn out of 78%, there are about 145,000 votes which will still be short even if Mahama is to win all of them.
