John Mahama, president of Ghana, has called for the results of the country's presidential election to be respected. But the opposition says Friday's vote was rigged and is deciding whether to challenge it. Mahama won the election with just over 50 per cent of the vote, narrowly avoiding a runoff. Al Jazeera's Yvonne Ndege reports from Accra.
