Pollster Benjamin Emmanuel Ephson has tipped Stephen Ayesu Ntim to lead the New Patriotic Party (NPP) after its National Delegates Conference Saturday.
However, the Managing Editor of the Daily Dispatch newspaper says how Mr. Ntim answers his questions between tonight and tomorrow might change things.
Speaking on a special discussion on the conference on Onua TV/FM Friday, July 15, 2022, Mr. Ephson said many of the delegates may want to know why Mr. Ntim is contesting the Chairmanship record five times.
And how the Board Chairman of the Lands Commission responds to this pertinent question according to Mr. Ephson will either affirm his chances or alter it.
“People will question why he [Stephen Ntim] is coming for the fifth time. He is the favourite but between tonight and tomorrow, how he answers his questions will determine,” he noted.
The Pollster continued Prof. Christopher Ameyaw-Akumfi will follow Mr. Ntim considering the late entering of Stephen Asamoah Boateng.
“Ameyaw-Akumfi will come close to Stephen Ntim because Asamoah came late to the race. If Ntim stretches to win, Ameyaw will follow,” he emphasised.
The NPP goes to the polls Saturday, July 16 to elect its national executives for the next four years.
Keen amongst the contention are the Chairmanship and National Organiser positions.
Even though the General Secretary contest looks tight, connoisseurs of the game have tipped incumbent John Boadu to give his close contender, Justin Kodua Frimpong a run for his money.
