According the newspaper, the BNI's research concluded that Nana Akufo-Addo would annex 51.90 per cent with President John Dramani Mahama getting eight per cent less.

But in a statement, the BNI said: “The story, headlined - BNI tells Mahama: People are voting for change," was false.

“We wish to place on record that the BNI has not conducted or commissioned any such poll. The story is false and must be disregarded,” the BNI’s statement said.
