The Flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Mahama beat incumbent President Akufo-Addo by scoring 54.7% in an online poll organized by Songstress Becca on her Twitter Timeline.
Becca, who has a mix blend of NPP, NDC followers asked her fans “Who will be elected president again at the 2020 Presidential elections, who has your vote?” giving the option to choose between John Mahama who served as a former President (2012-2016) and Nana Akufo-Addo incumbent President seeking re-election.
Out of 11,884 votes, John Mahama came tops with 54.7 percent while President Akufo-Addo scored 45.3%.
Several of the comments praised John Mahama as a better choice than President Akufo-Addo.
Becca’s online poll comes after the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) tipped President Akufo-Addo to be victorious in the 2020 general elections against John Mahama.
This is because, according to the EIU, the National Democratic Congress will find it difficult to convince Ghanaians it is a better custodian of the country’s economy under former President John Dramani Mahama.
“We, therefore, expect Mr Akufo-Addo and the NPP to secure re-election,” the EIU’s April 2020 report stated.
“The next national elections are due in December 2020. The Economist Intelligence Unit expects the NPP to retain power, as the party is seen as a better custodian of the economy than the opposition National Democratic Congress,” the report added.
