Source: kasapafmonline. com - Pollster, Ben Ephson who wrongly predicted Mahama’s victory over his main opponent, Nana Akufo-Addo in the 2016 polls has told the New Patriotic Party(NPP) that he’s not God for him to always get things right all the time.
“The NPP’s attitude towards this polling is worrying; they treat me as God, I feel humbled but I’m not God. If I’ve done five polls and I’ve got one wrong I should walk with my chest out” Ephson told Fiifi Banson on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.5 FM Wednesday.

Ephson’s style of polling failed to accurately predict Ghana’s presidential election’s outcome as his tip, Incumbent John Mahama was massively defeated in the general elections held on December 7.

According to the poll, the governing National Democratic Congress' (NDC) presidential candidate was expected to garner 52.4 percent of the votes while his main rival Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) would get 45.9 percent.

The other five presidential candidates, according to the forecast were not expected to even contribute more than 1.7 percent.

Following the defeat of President Mahama, there have been pressure mounting on him to apologize to the electorate for the wrongful prediction.

But Speaking on Kasapa FM, Ephson who is also the Managing Editor of the Dispatch newspaper said those calling for his head over what has been widely criticized as a deceptive polls are not serious.

Despite admitting to wrongful predictions, he insists he will only consider readjusting his method and move on.
