There were three other contenders – Abdul-Rashid Mohammed, Mahamoud Tahiru Zunglana and Alhassan Andani, who is the immediate past Chief Executive Officer of Stanbic Bank Ghana.

After the polls, Mahamoud Tahiru Zunglana emerged winner with 23 votes while the former Stanbic boss polled eight votes to come second.

Abdul Rashid-Mohammed had only one vote.

The elections were held by the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC) in accordance with Article 89 of the 1992 Constitution.
