Ahead of the December 2020 general elections, KUDUS Research and Advocacy Center has predicted President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will retain his position as head of state.

The centre’s prediction comes after a generic poll conducted between 20th February and 7th March 2020.

“A total of about 600 sampling was taken using purposive and random sample out of which about 450 responded. Focus was on pro-NPP regions like Ashanti region Eastern region and Pro NDC regions like Volta region and Northern regions (UE, UW, NR) and others including Central Region, Western Region, Greater Accra Brong Ahafo classified as swing regions based on voting patterns of Ghana from 2000-2016,” KURAC noted in a press statement.

The statement further noted that the president will win the elections by 54% “to John Dramani Mahama who will win by 46% in this hypothetical situation but Ghanaian voters are the best judges as we would be releasing more generics not only about the presidency but the parliamentary as well.”
