    CNN.erred in their declaration. This whites make gains when there are confusions in African countries. Did they pick the results from the EC, or they have the pink sheets?

    Please with all due respect.”CNN IS NOT MANDATED TO ANNOUNCE THE PRESIDENT ELECT FOR GHANA”.THIS RESPONSIBILITY IS FOR THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION OF THE REPUBLIC OF GHANA TO DO THAT. AND FOR YOUR INFORMATION THE E.C ARE WORKING ON THE RESULTS AND HAVE NOT MADE ANY DECLARATION OF “WHO HAVE WON AND WHO HAVE LOST”.

        Yes he has. The pink sheet results indicate that. The EC cannot announce contrary results. They are just delaying the inevitable.

    Thank God the International Observer Mission and the international media place so much value on time to waste it unproductively. CNN declaration was once again a blow on Ghanaians, pointing to deficiencies that either shrouded human resource capacity or loyalty.

    We must learn as a people to accept our mistakes. Is it wrong for someone to preemt you when you are not doing the right thing? What is wrong about CNN’s declaration of Nana Addo’s victory? Let’s learn to respect internationally recognized institutions, if we want to be seen as serious people.

    I thank CNN so much for teaching Ghanaians loyalty and judicious use of time.

    The so called CNN are stupid if it’s true if they have said so because they want to create fight let’s not forget we have oil in our country and they will do anything to take advantage my brothers and sisters we need to wise up and hope for the best for our country

      I see it. I once told a white Man about this theft and he justified it saying, they come to steal cos africans are ideal bones so they deserve it since they are hardworking. But i don’t think that is the case here. Even if CNN was paid to say that,(true though, the result is explicit) they don’t have that influence over Ghana. They don’t have our respect, most Ghanaians don’t even care about CNN.

    CNN is not a Ghanaian news station and therefore not a supporter of any party: Neutral.
    So they declare NPP the winner according to their provisional results, its not bias but genuine. We all did maths in school and we must therefore know by now what the Ec is to declare. Only Dimwits can’t see this. I wonder if EC would have taken this long to declare if NDC was with the upper hand in this 2016 election.

    If the EC isn’t matured enough to take its responsibility serious, then the CNN would be right to act on behalf of the people of Ghana.

    CNN did not announce anything from the space
    they just announced the results they have put together
    from the votes casted by Ghanaians
    EC is just being too slow

    When you fail to take responsibilities, someone who is ahead in critical thinking will have no choice but to take it. If it were to be a breaking news, we would be grateful to CNN so why is this all about criticizing the EC. Lets call a spade a spade and not a big spoon. Time is a doll in Africa but a diamond somewhere else…………………

    Hmmmmm. Surprised at this nunoo guy and all the ndc supporters led by their stubborn and proud general secretary. Last four years before the EC came out the multimedia group have already declared the results. In the year 2008 when results were delayed a bit, ndc supporters rushed to the EC offices with cutlasses, stones and rod chanting they were the winners cost they were leading in the parliamentary. Today the same people don’t want to hear those who have swept about 172 seats out of 275 to jubilate over their assured victory? Hypocrisy and Dishonesty. The good news is that what is written is written. Men changed:Nana can’t be president but God has proven them all wrong. Nana aba. Nana atena ase. Nyame de Nana b3y3 adwumapa ama Oman Ghana

      @ Ofori, YOU OF ALL PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW BETTER AS A GHANAIAN CITIZEN THAT IT IS THE WORK OF THE E.C ANNOUNCE CERTIFIED RESULTS. NOT RESULTS THAT ONE CREATES AND COMES OUT AND DECLARES IT SELF AS WINNER OF OUR ELECTIONS. WITH All DUE RESPECT PLEASE LET US ALL WAIT FOR THE E.C TO COME OUT WITH THE FINAL RESULTS… WHO EVER THAT WINS WILL BE PRESIDENT OF OUR COUNTRY.. THANK YOU!

    CNN has said nothing. Take a closer look at the cnn logo and compare. Fare enough if Nana wins but stop false propaganda because it will take you into opposition quickly.
