The Member of Parliament elect for Ningo Prampram in the Greater Accra region, Sam Dzata George, seemingly broke from the NDC’s official line and declared Nana Akuffo-Addo the President-elect in a post on social media, although he later took down the post and revealed he had been hacked.
The NPP leader has taken a lead in the collated results so far, and several media houses have even projected him as the winner of the election – but the NDC continue to maintain all the results are not in and they could win the election, so they are unwilling to acknowledge Nana Addo’s lead.
But in a post on twitter earlier in the day, it looked like George had bucked that trend and acknowledged Akuffo-Addo as President-elect. The tweet read….
But not long after, he sent out another tweet denying sending out the first on calling Nana the President-elect. According to him, he had been hacked for some mischievous purposes.
My Facebook account has been hacked. A fake message has been sent. Kindly ignore the mischief. My account should be up and running soon.

The results of the Presidential elections continue to trickle in from the Electoral Commission and for now, both parties maintain that they are winning.
