EIU Polls: Mahama is coming back --- Dr. Pelpuo

Member of Parliament for Wa Central, Rashid Pelpuo has said despite the Economist Intelligence Unit’s (EIU) survey pointing to the fact that incumbent President Nana Akufo-Addo would win the upcoming 2020 Presidential polls, the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Dramani Mahama is coming back as President of Ghana.  

On his twitter account he pointed out that it had happened before, when in 2008 late professor John Mills had no resources, “his vehicles ran on fuel contributions”.

The EIU polls were against him “Nana” (President Nana Akufo-Addo) then candidate was fully loaded and ran on excess liquidity.

“EIU was reading positive polls for him (Nana Akufo-Addo) but he lost to late professor John Atta Mills who won that elections”.

The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has predicted re-election victory for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2020.

EIU said in a report on Ghana released recently that “Nana Akufo-Addo, the president, and his NPP will see the country’s economic situation generally improve during the remainder of their terms of office.

In the presidential election, it says Akufo-Addo will face a challenge from John Mahama— Ghana’s president from 2012 to early 2017, who was elected leader of the opposition NDC in February 2019.”

The report released on May 13, 2019, stated further that “the 2016 legislative election was won by the NPP; and the campaign was dominated by the faltering economy, which many Ghanaians still associate with Mr. Mahama.”

Accordingly, “The Economist Intelligence Unit believes that it will be difficult for the NDC under Mr. Mahama to portray itself as the better custodian of Ghana’s economy, especially as the country’s growth outlook is fairly strong.”
