The National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) presidential candidate, Mr John Dramani Mahama, has expressed appreciation to the public “for voting for change.”
“Thank you for voting for change and giving the NDC a working majority in the next Parliament. Thank you Ghana,” Mr Mahama posted on social media platforms Tuesday, Dev.

His post follows the NDC’s firm belief that they have won 141 parliamentary seats out of the 275 constituencies in Monday’s polls.
The party’s General Secretary, Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, said at a press conference on Monday that its tally shows that Mr Mahama was also on course to win the Presidential race.
The New Patriotic Party's General Secretary, Mr John Boadu, has however discredited the claim by the NDC.
According to him, the NPP has won 137 seats out of the 275 parliamentary seats.
"But although we are in majority which is not very big, our presidential candidate because of the good work he has done, has been able to gather more voters than most of our Parliamentary candidates. Once again..., we are making the point that, whereas we do not wish to declare that we have won the presidential race, we can confidently say that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has secured a clear incontestable margin ahead of his closest challenger, John Mahama," he said Tuesday afternoon.
The Electoral Commission (EC) is yet to declare the presidential results.
