A new national poll released by Global InfoAnalytics for the month of April 2023 says that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo‘s job approval rating is taking a nose dive after making a recovery in January 2023.

According to the poll, 65 percent of voters disapprove of his performance, up from 59 percent in January, while 29 percent approve of his performance, down from 32 percent.

For the National Democratic Congress (NDC) it said, 11 percent approved his job performance whilst 86 percent disapproved his performance. Additionally, 15 percent of floating voters approved of his performance compared to 77 percent who disapproved his performance.

“71 percent of voters believed Ghana is headed in the wrong direction, unchanged from January 2023 poll. 19 percent believed it is headed in the right direction and a further 10 percent did not have opinion.

“For the NPP primaries, the poll shows Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong (KOA) surging among general voters but not enough to overtake Hon Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanten (AKK) and H.E. Mahamudu Bawumia (DMB) in the race to lead the NPP into the 2024 elections,” the Poll said.

It added Mr Agyapong now attracts 23 percent of votes when voters were asked to indicate their preference for the NPP leadership.

“AKK stills leads DMB, 30 percent to 29 percent among all voters. However, among NPP affiliates, DMB still has slender lead over AKK. DMB now attracts 39 percent of NPP votes, AKK attracts 37 percent and KOA, 23 percent.

“However, in the event of runoff, the poll shows AKK leading DMB 57 percent to 43 percent
among all voters and by 53 percent to 47 percent among NPP voters. For the NDC race, H.E. John Dramani Mahama (JDM) is set to clinch his party’s nomination when polls open on 13th May 2023 as he leads his closest rivals Dr Kwabena Duffuor (DKD) 75 percent
to 17 percent with Hon Kojo Bonsu in distance third with 8 percent of the votes. However,
among NDC affiliates, John Mahama leads Dr Duffuor 93 percent to 4 percent and Kojo
Bonsu(KB) with 3 percent. For the general elections, JDM leads all the NPP frontrunners. JDM leads AKK 54 percent to 40 percent with further 6 percent intend to vote for someone else. JDM also leads DMB 55 percent to 38 percent; 7 percent intend to vote for someone else.

“KOA is currently very competitive against JDM in what could be termed a meteoric rise in the poll. KOA now trails JDM 38 percent to 55 percent with 7 percent intending to vote someone else. In January, KOA trailed JDM by 31 percent to 63 percentage,” the Executive Summary of the report said.
