UG Political Science Dept Predicts 51.7 Per Cent Win for Akufo-Addo

A new electoral survey by the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana has predicted incumbent president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to win the 2020 elections with 51.7% of valid votes cast.

According to the new research by the Department, Ghanaians are prepared to retain Akufo-Addo as the President because of his policies which they consider as ‘good’.

“For those whose votes for a candidate would be based on sound campaign message, their preferred choice of presidential candidate is the NPP’s Nana Akufo-Addo (52.5%) followed by NDC’s John Mahama 40.9% then GUM’s Christian Kwabena Andrew (1.3%), but 3.7% have not decided on any of the candidates yet…,” the Department said.

The research which was led by Dr Isaac Owusu-Mensah, a Senior Lecturer stated further that:

“When respondents were stretched to indicate the presidential candidate they would vote for in the December 7 elections, 51.7% declared for Akufo-Addo, 40.4% favour John Mahama and 1.4% would vote for Christian Kwabena Andrews, and 1.4 and the undecided are 3.7%.”
