John Mahama, the former president, is expected to win the 2024 presidential election, according to two UK-based research firms.

The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and Fitch Solutions are the organisations that produced this forecast.

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is expected to take over from the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Ghana, according to the EIU.

According to the EIU, inadequate public services, dwindling living standards, and a lack of work prospects will be the main causes of this.

However, Fitch Solutions predicts that former President Mahama would win the swing regions by around 48 per cent to Vice President Bawumia's 29 per cent, making it impossible for the ruling party to hold onto power.

BMI, a Fitch Solutions business, projects that the ruling NPP's chances of holding into power after the 2024 election are slim.

They used data from Global Info Analytics in addition to their own statistics, which showed that the NDC was ahead of the NPP in the Akan, Northern, Volta-Oti, and all swing regions.
