In a confidential independent poll concerning the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) presidential primaries scheduled for November 4, 2023, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia emerges as the frontrunner with an impressive 78.37% of the vote, according to details obtained by priningonline. His closest competitor, Kennedy Agyepong, the NPP Assin Central constituency lawmaker, trails behind with 20.86% of the votes. Dr. Owusu Akoto Afriyie is projected to secure 0.41%, while Francis Addai Nimoh is at 0.36%.
