Scores of well-wishers have been pouring in to Nana Akufo-Addo's Nima residence after his stunning victory in Wednesday's presidential election.
The former foreign minister beat his National Democratic Congress (NDC) rival and incumbent president, John Mahama, in an election that involved 15 million voters.
Akufo-Addo, who was contesting his third straight presidential election, secured 5,716,026 votes, representing 53.85 percent, to beat Mahama, who managed 4,713,277 votes, which represented 44.40 per cent.
Many well wishers, including political opponents, have wished Akufo-Addo well.
The president-elect, who ran on a mantra of change, has pledged to tackle corruption and undertake a massive industrial transformation of the country.
He has specifically pledged to build a factory in every constituency in Ghana as well as a dam in every Ghanaian village to boost agriculture.
Akufo-Addo will now be sworn in as the fifth president of the Fourth Republic on January 7, 2017.
He will have the opportunity to form a government and try to deliver the change he promised the Ghanaian people.
