John Mahama, the main opposition presidential candidate in Ghana’s elections has denied reports that he conceded after a letter circulated falsely claiming that he had done so.
Mr Mahama’s National Democratic Congress has said the letter – which bears the party’s logo and is apparently authored by him – is a fake.
The letters says: “The results so far do not give me any tangible pathway to the presidency,” and purports to congratulate his opponent, President Nana Akufo-Addo.
“I have not congratulated any person,” Mr Mahama said on Tuesday night.
