Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo on Thursday appointed a 15-member transition team to ensure he begins his second term in office smoothly.

President Akufo-Addo was declared winner for a second term in this month’s presidential election.

Ghana’s constitution requires that the winning presidential candidate names a transitional team within 24 hours after the electoral commission officially declares results.

The team will be chaired by President Akufo-Addo’s chief of staff Akosua Frema Osei-Opare.

The election commission on Wednesday said President Akufo-Addo won the election with 51.59% of the total votes cast, while Mr Mahama secured 47.36%.

But the results have been rejected by his main rival, the former President John Mahama.

Mahama on Thursday said “We will not accept anything short of a declaration of the legitimate results, which point to an NDC Parliamentary Majority.

My Brothers and Sisters, advisedly, since the inception of the Fourth Republic, final election results have always been declared within 72 hours to allow for a thorough and diligent collation.”

He adds that the party will take steps to reverse the results of the elections stating that “We will take all legitimate steps to reverse this travesty of justice”.
