Akufo-Addo calls on Mahama to concede defeat

Nana Akufo-Addo, the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has called on his rival in the presidential election, John Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), to concede defeat.

In an interview with GHone TV, Akufo-Addo said he was confident Mahama would do the right thing.

"I believe he is capable of meeting his responsibility and working to bring our nation together. The John Mahama that I know I believe is capable of rising to the occasion," he said.

Meanwhile the NDC has indicated it would ask the EC to cancel the votes in 200 polling stations the Ashanti and Eastern regions.

The party said it had evidence of over-voting in those polling stations that could impact the outcome of the election.

According to Alhaji Haruna Rashid Ibrahim, the NDC representative at the EC’s National Collation Centre (Strong Room), if the commission cancels the results from those 200 polling stations in line with C.I. 94, it would cause a reduction in the votes gathered by Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Pary (NPP).
