The Youth for Nduom 2012 Exploratory Committee has revealed that the presidential hopeful of the Conventions People’s Party, (CPP) Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom is not popular among electorates in the Ashanti Region.
The committee was launched in Accra last month to ascertain Dr. Nduom’s viability as a candidate for president in the 2012 elections.
According to the committee, results in the Central and Western Regions were positive in favour of Dr. Nduom; however, those from the Ashanti Region indicated that the former presidential candidate of the CPP is unpopular in the region.
Speaking to Citi News, spokesperson for the Youth for Nduom 2012 Exploratory Committee, Nii Armah noted that their checks have also revealed that Dr Nduom’s has a good chance of becoming President if some conditions of the electorate are met.
“In the Ashanti Region they seem to know him only as the former flagbearer of CPP, some people do not even know that he has been a Minister of State before. This is a good indicator for Dr Nduom because it would serve as an advice to him to intensify his campaign activities in the Region.
“When we come to the people’s assessment of him as a President, they all assess him very good and people are willing to vote for him based on some conditions which include, them seeing a vibrant CPP in the upcoming elections.
“They (electorate) say Dr Nduom is a very fine gentleman, they admire the way he talks and they think he can be a better President given the options they have available now”.
