With 185 out of 275 constituency results in, I am calling the election for President Elect Nana Akuffo Addo. There is a surprisingly uniform swing to Nana across every region of the country, and he cannot lose from this position.
This is the swing to Nana region by region, based on my constituency by constituency analysis of the results. There is a swing to the NPP in every single region.
Swing to Nana Akuffo Addo
Ashanti Region 6.1%
Brong Ahafo 6.3%
Greater Accra 4.2%
Upper East 5.6%
Upper West 6.2%
Ultimately I predict Nana Akuffo Addo will get a strong mandate with 53.1% of the vote once counting has finished.
I believe this result is a popular reaction against levels of corruption in Ghana that had become terrifying. I am very happy indeed that Ghana has yet again shown it is a mature democracy, and for the third time this millennium the ruling party has been democratically replaced by the opposition.
