A survey conducted by the Ghana Centre for Democratic Development (CDD) shows that 52% of Ghanaians are confident that the government will consolidate gains made under the Free Senior High School (SHS) programme.

The report sampled the views of over 2000 Ghanaians from all 16 regions of the country between 23 May and 3 June.

The findings, however, reveal 57% of Ghanaians have no confidence in the government to expand the One District One Factory (1D1F) initiative across the country.

Touching on the 2020 elections, the report blamed the reduction of the president’s vote on his own performance and that of NPP MPs.

“A cumulative 58% attributed the reduction in President Nana Akufo-Addo’s vote margin to the president’s policy decision and actions (cited by 21%), his MPs’ and appointees’ performance (19%), as well as the president’s performance (18%).

“Respondents attributed the loss of seats by the NPP to the non-performance of the NPP and its MPs (33%), as well as the party’s bad campaign strategy (24%),” the CDD report added.

The report, however, attributed the gains the NDC made in the parliamentary elections to the non-performance of the NPP MPs (22%) and the NDC’s campaign strategy (15%).

Below is a summary of the findings:
