“As president, I’ve done my bit, I made a contribution to the political, social and the economic development of our country. I would have cherished an opportunity to do even more but I respect the will of the Ghanaian people.” President John Dramani Mahama has said.

Mr. Mahama, who is Ghana’s sitting president lost to the leader of the main opposition party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) with 4,713,277 representing 44.40% as against Nana Addo’s 5,716,026 representing 53.85%.

Mr. Mahama addressing the nation in his concession speech said Ghana is a “powerful nation with the history of taking the improbable and making it possible.”

He thanked all Ghanaians, those who voted for him and those who didn’t and urged all come together and hold the peace and stability of the country.

He underscored the need for peace to prevail, reminding all of what instability has done to most countries in other parts of the continent and the world at large.

He commended the electoral commission for living up to expectation, his family, party members, the president elect, the media and everybody who has contributed to the electoral process.
