President Akufo-Addo has retained power for a second term after beating his closest opponent John Mahama in the presidential race.
The election which was tipped to be a close contest lived up to expectation.
Akufo-Addo of the NPP and Mahama of the NDC both had high hopes of winning but it was the former that emerged victorious after 3 days on tensed period.
According to the Electoral Commission Chair Jean Mensa who is the Returning Officer the election was free and fair.
With the figures, President Akufo-Addo polled 6,730,413 representing 51.9% while John Mahama polled 6,214,889 representing 47.36.
Total valid votes cast according to the Electoral Commission was 13,434,574 representing 79% of total registered voters.
The two candidates competed against each other for the first time in 2012, which was won by John Mahama.
Akufo-Addo also defeated John Mahama in the 2016 general elections.
This will, however, be the last time Nana Akufo-Addo will be facing off Mahama in an election, given that the former will be ineligible to contest in another election, having served two terms.
In all, 12 presidential candidates contested in the 2020 polls.
