Victor says Ghana vote win should be honoured

Incumbent John Mahama calls for acceptance of his victory in Friday's presidential poll but opposition say vote rigged.

    John Mahama, president of Ghana, has called for the results of the country's presidential election to be respected.

    But the opposition says Friday's vote was rigged and is deciding whether to challenge it.

    Mahama won the election with just over 50 per cent of the vote, narrowly avoiding a runoff.
