I will be surprised if Nana Akufo-Addo.........

After all the propaganda induce endorsements from UK, USA China etc. prior to our super delegates’ elections. I will be surprised if Nana Akufo-Addo fails to secure 90 per cent of valid votes cast at the New Patriotic Party’s Special Delegates Congress, as projected by his team.

The all-important Sunday poll is undoubtedly a major test for the seven contenders, two of who will be eliminated in accordance with the rules of the event. For some political analysts, the vote margins between the contenders after the final declaration, will foretell who will ultimately become the party’s presidential candidate.

Two of the contenders Nana Akufo-Addo and Alan John Kyerematen have long been recognized as frontrunners in the contest and their names feature in all predictions of the five who will sail through. What has remained uncertain is the number of votes anyone is getting.

However, the camp of Nana Akufo-Addo says it believes nine out of every ten votes will be cast for him.
