Ghana Voting Stations Close, Poll Body Aims for Speedy Results

Voting stations have closed in Ghana, where President Nana Addo Akufo-Addo reiterated his commitment to peace and stability, assuring the Ghanaian people of his readiness to accept the election outcome. There were 12 presidential candidates and 914 parliamentary hopefuls on the ballot. The two front-runners remain Akufo-Addo and former president John Mahama. The two candidates squared up four years ago when the latter was the incumbent. During his nationwide address on Sunday, Akufo-Addo emphasised that "improper behaviour by any citizen, no matter the party, will not be tolerated".
