NDC MattersMahama should not contest election 2020 – Ben Ephson

Pollster and Managing Editor of the Daily Dispatch, Ben Ephson has advised former President John Mahama not to lead the National Democratic Congress (NDC) party for election 2020.

According to him, the former president will be making the wrong move if he is to engage in such an exercise as he is likely to lead a divided front.

“If ex-President Mahama has political experience, with the in-fighting in the NDC that is going to worsen in the period ahead, it’s a taking a horse for racing and after losing, the same horse which is sick is used for another racing contest. If he comes back as the Flagbearer, he’s going to go into election 2020 with a weakened and disunited party. Should he decide to stage a comeback to lead the party I’ll be very surprised. It’s very unlikely he’ll come back,” he said on Accra-based Kasapa FM.
