Campaigns end in Ghana ahead general elections.

Party songs took over Ghana’s capital Accra to mark the final day of campaigns ahead of general elections.

Twelve candidates, including three women, are vying for the west African nation’s top job, but Monday’s vote is essentially a fight between President Nana Akufo-Addo, and former head of state John Mahama.

Akufo-Addo, running for a second term, drove through the shanty town of Nima, making whistle stops to acknowledge mammoth crowds clad in T-shirts of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Defying all COVID-19 protocols, with just a handful wearing face masks, the crowd waved miniature flags as the president headed towards the rally grounds where he was due to address supporters.

Opposition leader, John Mahama meanwhile kicked off his final day of campaigning by meeting local chiefs and labour union leaders, assuring them of more jobs if he won the December 7 election.
