Ghanaian presidential candidate Nana Akufo-Addo of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) waves during his last rally at trade fair in AccraBy Kwasi Kpodo ACCRA (Reuters) - Ghana's main opposition leader on Sunday called on voters to rally behind him, saying he has the credentials to quickly turn the economy around and is not looking to amass personal wealth. Nana Akufo-Addo told flag-waving supporters at a rally ahead of Wednesday's polls that President John Mahama's government has mismanaged the economy and unleashed hardship on the people, adding that retaining it would constitute a threat to the nation's future. Mahama is seeking a second and final four-year term in what is expected to be a close race between him and Akufo-Addo.

In this Sunday, Dec. 4, 2016 photo, Amina Hamawy cries after she returned to her looted home in the Hanano district of eastern Aleppo, Syria. It's a painful homecoming shared by hundreds of Syrians who are returning to areas devastated by years of war and then retaken from the city's embattled rebels in a recent government offensive. More than 30,000 people have fled Aleppo since the latest government offensive began last month, joining the more than 10 million Syrians -- nearly half the population -- who have fled their homes since the conflict began. (AP Photo/Hassan Ammar)ALEPPO, Syria (AP) — Amina Hamawy burst into tears and then fainted when she returned to eastern Aleppo to find that looters had ransacked her home. "Where am I? What happened?" she asked after her husband and daughter revived her. "We have lost everything."
