The 2016 general elections have finally come to an end! But just like any other historic event, this election forever brings lasting memories one way or the other in our dear minds.
Observed as one of the smooth and peaceful elections Ghana has ever held, the 2016 election was seen as a knife-edge race between the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the incumbent National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Where as some Ghanaian voters were thirsty for change, others were so bent on retaining President John Dramani Mahama of the NDC.
Views were shared, massive campaign rallies were held but all in all, the call for peace was all that mattered.
At the end of a heated political campaign season, votes were cast and the main opposition leader, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo was declared winner with a landslide victory of 53 percent.
Ghana was just not like any other African country were the sitting government frowns upon a regime change. As much as it hurt, President Mahama conceded defeat to his fiercest rival and president-elect, Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo.
Even as Ghana transitions into a new administration come January 7th 2017, one thing remains certain - a united country still being the beacon of democracy in sub-Saharan Africa!
