John Mahama To Win By 58% If Elections Were Held Today – Polls Suggest

A new opinion poll conducted by Global Info Analytics in July 2022 shows John Mahama of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) taking a significant lead in his quest to lead the country again in 2025.

John Mahama now leads Dr Mahamudu Bawumia of the New Patriotic Party, the current vice president, in a hypothetical race 58% to 31% (27% margin) if elections were held today, a further 11% prefer to vote for someone else in the 2024 elections.

In another hypothetical race between John Mahama and Hon Alan Kyeremanten, the Trade and Industry Minister, another frontrunner for the NPP, John Mahama leads Hon. Kyeremanten 61% to 30% (31% margin) and someone else 9%.

Hon Alan Kyeremanten’s collapse in the polls for July compared to Dr Bawumia was the result of the collapse of NPP support in the Northern region if Bawumia isn’t the candidate as Mahama who lost to Bawumia in the Northern by 88% to 9%, dramatically beats Alan Kyeremanten by 87% to 12%. In the race to lead the NPP, the poll finds Hon Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanten extending his lead amongst general voters.

The poll shows Alan attracting 42% of the votes compared to 35% for Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and Hon Kennedy Agyepong, 11%.

The Member of Parliament for Assin Central and late entrant in the NPP race appears to have turned the NPP race on its head, at least among general voters, as he peels away support from Dr Bawumia and Hon Kyeremanten.

Hon. Kennedy Agyepong, according to the polls, leads in Weija Gbawe, Okaikwei South, Anlo, Akim Oda, and Asene-Akroso-Manso.

In the race to lead the NDC, John Mahama maintains a stable lead over Dr Kwabena Dufour as he is backed by 71% of voters compared to 15% for Dr Kwabena Dufour. Hon Kojo Bonsu obtains a paltry 2%.

With regards to the direction of the country, a whopping 76% of Ghanaians believe the country is headed in the wrong direction compared to 16% who believe it is headed in the right direction.

This represents significant deterioration compared to April 2022 polls when 67% thought it was headed in the wrong direction compared to 26%. The poll finds the president sinking further in the opinion poll as only 23% of voters approve of the way he is performing his job as president with 72% disapproving of his performance (net favorability rating of negative 49% (April 2022, negative 40%).

Voters by 69% to 30% opposed the use of state funds to build the national cathedral.

The biggest opposition to the move comes from Christians who oppose it with 72% compared to 65% of Muslims. On whether the government should proceed with the Agyapa deal, 68% of voters oppose the transaction whilst 24% support it.

On party affiliations to the opposition, 58% of NPP supporters oppose it, whilst 79% of NDC supporters oppose it with floating voters being 71%.

On the question of whether a commission of enquiry should be set up to investigate allegations of state capture following the controversy surrounding the Will of the late Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, AKA Sir John, 69% of voters support this call whilst 22% oppose it and 10% have no opinion.

The poll by Global Info Analytics used a sample size of 5,490 with a margin of error of ±1.737%.

Host of Maakye on Onua TV/FM, Blessed Godsbrain Captain Smart has said until President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo sacks Chairman Wontumi, his fight against galamsey would forever be a figment of his imagination.

Captain Smart, who has mentioned Bernard Antwi Bosiako, a.k.a. Wontumi, a regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party, as a kingpin in the illegal mining business said the President’s visit to discuss among other things, the increasing galamsey in the region would yield no result until Wontumi is ousted.

“There is only one media house in this country that can go to the Ashanti region and in less than a week, the president has to go there. Because the issues popping up are many. But Nana Addo, sack Wontumi before you can fight galamsey. Until you sack him, you can never fight galamsey,” he said.

NDC Name Top Officials Involved In Galamsey In Ashanti Region

The Ashanti Region Communications Bureau of the major opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is alleging top executives of their archrivals are neck-deep in the growing galamsey menace.

The NDC specifically pointed fingers at New Patriotic Party (NPP) Ashanti Region Communication Director Dennis Kwakwa as “deeply involved in the galamsey menace including other top executives in the region”.

When probed by host of Akoma FM‘s GhanAkoma Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin to withdraw his comment because his platform has no evidence to his claims, Director of Communication for NDC in Ashanti Region Abass Nurudeen insisted that “I know what I’m saying Kofi. You can disassociate yourself from what I’m saying but it’s not mere allegation”.

Mr Nurudeen while speaking on the show Tuesday, October 4, explained that he is aware and has reliable information that almost all the national and regional executives of the NPP have concessions and are assiduously digging into the Earth’s belly for the precious metal at the expense of the ecology.

Reacting to the NDC allegations was member of the NPP communication team, Baafour Asaase Gyimah.

He explained that “though Mr Nurudeen is just making empty allegations, I will advise him to be careful because such insinuations can really cost you your political career but I can categorically say none of the NPP executives I know are legitimately involved in small-scale mining but galamsey I doubt any of my executives will have himself involved”.

The issue of galamsey has been topical in recent times especially when the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II waded into the topic and quizzed why government’s numerous fights on galamsey have proven futile.

Ghanaians Are Suffering Everyday Under Our Economic Situation Worse – John Mahama

Former President, John Dramani Mahama who also doubles as the leader of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has once again lamented the country’s economic woes.

Mr. Mahama in a Twitter post on Tuesday noted that the economic situation is “distressing” and getting worse by the day.

The NDC flagbearer for the 2020 elections called on the government to, promptly and with eagerness, secure a programme from the IMF to stabilize the country’s economy.

“Distressing! Every passing day makes our economic situation worse. Gov’t must work with greater alacrity to lock in a programme with the Fund in order to create a more predictable economic outlook,” John Mahama tweeted on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Rating agency, Moody’s has downgraded Ghana’s long-term issuer and senior unsecured debt ratings to CAA2 from CAA1 and placed the ratings on review for downgrade.

The rating downgrade to CAA2, it said, reflects the recent macroeconomic deterioration, further heightening the government’s liquidity and debt sustainability difficulties and increasing the risk of default.

This follows the recent downgrade of Ghana’s credit rating to ‘CC’ from ‘CCC’ by Fitch.
