The deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Peter Boamah Otokunor, says the recent research conducted by the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana cannot be counted as credible.
The said research postulated that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is likely to win again should Ghanaians vote today.
The report said Nana Addo will win with 49.3%, while John Mahama will trail behind with just 33.3%.
About 5,000 Ghanaians nationwide were sampled during the research, but the NDC has cast doubts over the credibility of the outcome.
According to the party’s deputy General Secretary, the research was conducted by members of the NPP.
“Our search has indicated that this is not a report that can be owned by the department but perhaps some individuals who work in the political science department. In fact, all the leaders of the research, we know them very well and we know their political leanings,” Otokunor said on Citi FM’s Eyewitness News.
“We know they belong to the NPP. You know Dr. Bossman was leading the research last year and in no time we saw that he got some favour from the government.”
During the 2018 general elections, Akufo-Addo and the NPP polled 53.9% of the total valid votes, with John Mahama and the NDC managing just 44.4%.
