Mahama likely to win 2024 election – EIU, Fitch Solutions predict


Two UK-based research firms are predicting a win for former President John Mahama in the upcoming 2024 Presidential elections.

The firms making this projection are the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and Fitch Solutions.

According to the EIU, Ghana is likely to experience a transfer of power from the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

This, the EIU says, will be largely driven by declining living standards, limited job opportunities, and poor public services.

Fitch Solutions, on the other hand, says the ruling party is unlikely to remain in power with former President Mahama expected to win the swing regions by nearly 48 percent as against Vice President Bawumia’s 29%.

According to BMI, a Fitch Solutions company, it is unlikely that the ruling NPP will remain in power after the 2024 election.
