This comes on the back of November 4, 2024 flag bearer election for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP)
A survey conducted by Ben Ephson also suggests that the Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia will in the primaries come November 4.
Speaking on Morning Starr with Francis Abban, the Pollster indicated that he believes that there will not be occasions to necessitate the Assin Central lawmaker leaving the NPP.
“I think that if there is fairness, if there are cases of intimidation I think that Ken will be on board. During his campaign obviously he has made those slogans that if there is fairness there would be no problem. I doubt if there will be an attempt to try and marginalize any of his supporters or threaten any of his supporters.
“Everybody will realize that Bawumia is obviously the establishment candidate. In 2007 the numbers were not so huge but Alan Kyerematen lost. In 2007 Ministers of State who were seen openly supporting Akufo-Addo were dismissed. It was that blatant,” Mr. Ephson stated.
He continued: “Akufo-Addo being a victim of strong handedness of the establishment I think have avoided that. Peter Amewu is still at post. The female deputy Finance Minister is still at post as we speak is still at post. I mean 200,000 is a lot of numbers for an establishment candidate to be able to control and gag all of them.”
