I’m not ashamed, I’ll do more polls – Ben Ephson

Pollster Ben Ephson has said he is unperturbed about attacks on him following his controversial prediction about the presidential race.

The managing editor of the Dispatch newspaper had predicted a one-touch win for President John Mahama of the ruling National Democratic Congress, but provisional results in the polls are so far in favour of the opposition leader Nana Akufo-Addo.

Mr. Ephson in his polls categorically stated that there was no way the New Patriotic Party could win the elections, even if they benefited from the 2% error margin of his survey.

Following the results so far, the veteran journalist has been attacked by members of the opposition party with some youth trooping to his house to demand “answers”.

Speaking to GHOneTV on the outcome of the polls, Mr. Ephson said he cannot be deterred by the circumstances.

“I was wrong with my predictions in this year’s elections but i have had the previous five predictions right so i will just accept this one and move on.

“I am not ashamed of my polls, this is not the first time I have conducted a poll in Ghana, and I will continue to do more polls when the need arises”.
