Sequel to the official declaration by the Ghana Electoral Commission that the incumbent Ghana President, Akufo-Addo, who ran under the platform of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), polled 6,730,430 votes to defeat his main challenger — former President John Mahama and candidate of NDC — who secured 6,214,889 votes.



President Buhari has now extended his congratulatory message to the Ghana President cum ECOWAS chairman.

In a statement on Thursday, Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman, quoted the president as appealing to other contestants to put national interest above personal and partisan considerations as well as maintaining peace.

While noting that Ghana and Nigeria “share close historic and cultural ties”, Shehu said Buhari looks forward to working with his Ghanaian counterpart in bringing peace, security and prosperity to the citizens of both countries and the ECOWAS at large.

“The president commends the people of Ghana on the successful conclusion of the presidential and parliamentary elections, attesting further that with the right institutions and political leadership, constitutional democracy in the West African sub-region has come to stay,” Buhari said.

“The Nigerian leader wishes President Akufo-Addo a successful new tenure, peace and stability in his country as well as improved bilateral relations.”
