The Electoral Commission of Ghana with it’s chairperson, Mrs. Jean Adukwei Mensa has taken back the results of the presidential polls that was declared on December 9, 2020, after admitting it contained some errors.
On Thursday, December 10, 2020, a new post has been shared on the official verified Twitter handle of the Electoral Commission which reveals some corrections were made.
In a statement, the Electoral Commission clearly acknowledged that the Chairperson, Mrs Jean Mensah mistakenly used 13,433,573 as the total valid votes cast, which was not the case.
