The New Statesman newspaper has claimed that the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI) has told President John Mahama that he will lose the December 7 presidential election.
"The Daily Statesman can report that the outcome of the latest research conducted by the Bureau of National Investigations on the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections predicts a one-touch victory for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, with a clear NPP majority in Parliament," the paper said.
According to the Statesman, the BNI poll gives Nana Akufo-Addo 52%, which amounts to six percentage points, over President Mahama, who is predicted to receive 46% of the popular votes on December 7.
Although the BNI has denied conducting the poll, the Statesman insists that the national spy agency did.
In 2012, several pro-NPP newspaper claimed that BNI polls had given Akufo-Addo victory in the election, but Mahama ended up winning with 50.7% of the votes.
Meanwhile, a new poll by Ben Ephson is predicting that Mahama will win 52% of the votes in December.
