Nana-Addo, a candidate in the Ghanaian election
Citizens of Ghana reportedly trooped out to vote in a tight presidential election with the result expected to be released within three days.
Though there are seven candidates, the election is believed to be majorly between President John Mahama and opposition leader Nana Akufo Addo and the British Broadcasting Corporation reports that the exercise witnessed long queues.
Just like Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria, Mahama who was the country's vice president, became the substantive president in 2010 after the death of Attah Mills.
Many of the voters in the about 29,000 polling centres in the country are reportedly demanding for a change of government because of the country's state of the economy.
Some of them have wondered why the country was in such a sorry state even in the midst of vast natural resources.
So far, the election is said to be peaceful and is being monitored by thousands of domestic and foreign observers.
This would be like it happened during the 2015 election in Nigeria.
