Renowned Pollster and Managing Editor of The Daily Dispatch Newspaper has tipped Dr Bawumia and Assin North MP, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong as fovoritestands in the upcoming flagbearership contest.
According to the renowned Pollster, contrary to view that Alan Kyerematen and Buwumia are ahead in the upcoming election, the maverick Member of Parliament has made inroads and that the contest is now between Bawumia and Kennedy Agyapong.
This revelation comes on the back of the President position to support any candidate the party elects to lead going into the 2024 general elections.
The president in his Upper West Regional tour said during a radio interview that he has no preference in who becomes the flagbearer of the party, but will only want the person to be able to unite the party to beat the National Democratic Congress.
Mr. Ephson, who was speaking on starr FM morning show on Tuesday said, the contest for flagbearer is between Current Vice President Dr, Bawumia and Kennedy Agyapong.
“People think it is between Bawumia and Alan Kyerematen but I can tell you that it is between Bawumia and Kennedy, yes. I am finishing my book. We have done some work among delegates before the election. We have done work after the election.” He said
“I will give you just one or two scenarios to support my point. Alan Kyerematen since 2007 hasn’t done any work in the party. So if you are a delegate now who is thirty years old Kennedy Agyapong has worked in the party as we speak now for twenty-two years. He is a six term MP by 2024.” He added.
He continued: “I am not a delegate but from the work we have done, I think Alan could place third. If Alan places third, I will not be surprised at all. I am talking about figures that I have collected before the election and it is about 55% turn over at the polling station constituency level and the polling station is the biggest. In terms of over 200,000 delegates who will vote.”
Mr. Ephson acknowledge the numbers at the recent ‘Aduru wo so’ Health walk but was quick to add that, those who too part of the walk has few delegates who would decide on the day.
