NPP Race: "Akufo-Addo Is The Man To Beat" – Ephson

Two-time flagbearer of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo “is the man to beat” at the party’s presidential primary, Pollster Ben Ephson has said.

The Managing Editor of the Daily Dispatch Newspaper told Asempa FM’s political talk show Ekosii sen on Thursday that he would be “surprised” if the former Attorney General didn’t win the slot for a third consecutive time.

Ephson’s analysis comes on the heels of the entry into the race, of Second Deputy Speaker Joe Ghartey and Mampong MP, Francis Addai Nimoh.

Nana Akufo-Addo is already billed to face competition from former flagbearer contestants Alan Kyeremanten and Dr Kofi Konadu Apraku. A few more hopefuls are also lurking in the peripheries.

Despite harbingers of a highly likely competitive race, Ben Ephson says Nana Akufo-Addo will stretch the pack.
