We’II continue to campaign for every vote-Prez reacts to opinion polls
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has reacted to the survey and opinion polls that have predicted victory for him saying he would not be complacent.
The president says the polls are just opinions and there are votes Ghanaians will on December 7 cast hence he is swayed by the victory polls.
He made the remarks on Kingdom FM, a local radio station in Cape Coast in the Central Region, on Friday, November 27, 2020.
“Opinion polls are just opinion polls, and there are votes. Even though I am encouraged, I am not going to be complacent about it and lose my guard on campaigning. Right up to the midnight of December 5 that the laws allow us to campaign, we will continue to campaign for every single vote in the country and make sure it is ours so on the 7th of December 2020, we will be declared winners of the polls.”
“Even though I am not going to ignore the polls completely, my focus isn’t on it. After the elections, we will all know if the polls are right after the polls, and I am declared the winner.”
The Political Science Department of the University of Ghana has predicted a victory for President Akufo-Addo.
A survey conducted says 51.7% of the 11,000 sampled respondents said they will vote to retain the president.
Candidate John Dramani Mahama of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), will also garner 40.4% of the votes cast according to the survey.
