YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the Economist Intelligence Unit's (EIU) report for April 2020 is predicting victory for President Nana Akufo-Addo in the December polls.

According to the EIU report, it expects the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to retain power because it does not see the NDC’s flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama as a good custodian of the country’s economy.
