“I am not ashamed of my polls” – Ben Ephson

221139844_179182Pollster 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 on Atinka FM on the outcome of the polls, Mr. Ephson said he cannot be deterred by the circumstances.

“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”.
