UG Survey Result Encouraging But I Won’t Be Complacent – Akufo-Addo
President Akufo-Addo says he is encouraged by recent polls by the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana which predicted a victory for him on December 7.
According to the survey, 51.7% of the 11,000 sampled respondents said they will vote for President Akufo-Addo.
The flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama is also expected to follow with 40.4% of the votes cast according to the survey.
Commenting on the survey, President Akufo-Addo said though its outcome is great, he will not be complacent.
Speaking on Kingdom FM, a local radio station in Cape Coast in the Central Region, on Friday, November 27, 2020, President Akufo-Addo said the NPP will work hard till the results are counted and declared.
“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.”
