Mahama says aims to "make Ghana proud" no matter election outcome

ACCRA (Reuters) - Ghana’s President John Mahama said on Friday he aimed to “make the country proud” regardless of the final outcome of Wednesday’s election, which two private radio stations said he had lost to opposition leader Nana Akufo-Addo.

”Let’s allow EC (Electoral Commission) to carry out its constitutional mandate. We’ll make Ghana proud no matter outcome,“ of the election,” he said in a tweet on his official account. It was his first public comment since the vote.
