Consider One Of Your Rivals As Running Mate – Ephson To Mahama



Former President John Dramani Mahama’s presidential campaign in 2024 will hinge on him rebranding himself and selecting a new running mate.

This is the opinion of experienced journalist and pollster Ben Ephson, who has joined calls for Prof Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, Mahama’s 2020 running mate, to be withdrawn.

In an interview with Joy News, Ephson stated that the former president must consider any of his political rivals for the flagbearership role as his running mate.

“Mahama would have to rebrand himself because [winning the 2024 general elections] with the same running mate will be tough.” He may need to establish a coalition or choose a running companion from among the [NDC presidential candidates].

“…where Mahama is, he has the advantage of being promoted already,” he continued. And Mahama appears to be keeping his running companion for the 2020 [general elections] based on his body language. If he does, he should probably forget about 2024.”

So far, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, the former Finance Minister, and Kojo Bonsu, the former Mayor of Kumasi, have been said to be interested in running for the position.

Mahama’s office has announced in principle that he will run for the leadership of the National Democratic Congress, or NDC, in the next elections.

The statement was made in response to a research by the Economic Intelligence Unit (EIU) that suggested that the NDC had a possibility of regaining power in 2024, but that they should consider reviving the party with a new candidate.

Party leaders have flatly rejected the proposal, insisting that he (Mahama) is the greatest option for the party in 2024.
