From these statistics, it is clear that an overwhelming majority of Pulse Ghana’s followers favour the NDC’s Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang over the NPP’s Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh as Ghana’s vice president.

Notably, these polls were conducted and closed a few days before Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh’s formal introduction as the NPP's running mate by their flagbearer, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, on Tuesday, 9 July. During the event, Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh made controversial comments, asserting that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has developed Ghana better than all his predecessors, including the country’s founder and first President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.

These remarks have further created disaffection for the lawmaker and Energy Minister, who is widely perceived as arrogant, a perception reinforced by his dismissive responses to Ghanaians. Recently, he told Ghanaians requesting a load shedding timetable amid erratic power cuts to produce their own timetables.
