Global InfoAnalytics has released the results of a new opinion poll that shows John Mahama is ahead of Mahamudu Bawumia and Alan Kyerematen to become the next president of Ghana.
The poll conducted in July 2022 reveals former president and flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Mahama leads vice president Dr Bawumia of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Nigeria's main opposition party has won the governorship election in southwest Osun state, the electoral commission said on Sunday, in a major upset to President Muhammadu Buhari's ruling All Progressives Congress.
“In a hypothetical race 58% to 31% (27% margin) if elections were held today, a further 11% prefer to vote for someone else in the 2024 elections,” Global InfoAnalytics said in the executive summary.
The report said John Mahama leads trade minister Mr Kyerematen, a forerunner in the presidential race, with a 31% margin.

Also, in the race to lead the NPP, the poll finds Mr Kyerematen extending his lead among general voters.
“The poll shows Mr Kyerematen attracting 42% of votes compared to 35% for Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and Hon Kennedy Agyepong, 11%. The Member of Parliament for Assin Central and late entrant in the NPP race appears to have turned the NPP race on its head, at least among general voters, as he peels away support from Dr Bawumia and Hon Kyeremanten.
“Hon. Kennedy Agyepong, according to the polls, leads in Weija Gbawe, Okaikwei South, Anlo, Akim Oda, Asene-Akroso-Manso,” the report said.
The results for the poll were compiled from some 5,490 likely voters drawn from 72 constituencies.
Ghana facing challenges because Akufo-Addo has turned away from God - Owusu Bempah
In a separate story, YEN.com.gh reported that Rev Isaac Owusu Bempah, a popular preacher and self-proclaimed prophet, has said Ghana was facing a myriad of economic and other problems because President Nana Akufo-Addo doesn’t listen to God anymore.
The head of Glorious Word Power Ministries International, who is known popularly as ‘The Nation’s Prophet’ said just like the biblical Saul, the president has hardened his heart to the advice of God.
Rev. Owusu Bempah told RTV Ghana, an online-based local language media house, that just like Samuel (a prophet) distanced himself from Saul because of his stubbornness, he has also distanced himself from the president.
