Dr Mahama tweeted Thursday saying, “I will like to congratulate Nana Akufo-Addo of the NPP for winning the 2016 general elections based on my projections.”
He further called on the other political parties to concede defeat “especially the sitting president.”
“I call on my other contenders to do same especially the sitting President to concede gracefully. This is a victory for all Ghana,” he said in another tweet.
Meanwhile the NPP has held a press conference projecting a win for Nana Addo.
According to the National Campaign Manager of the party, Mr Peter Mac Manu, the party’s “parallel” counting of results from polling station pink sheets shows that Nana Addo has amassed 54% out of 80% of the votes counted so far.
