Renowned pollster Ben Ephson has said that former President John Mahama should not contemplate winning the 2024 general elections if he maintains his 2020 running mate, Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang.
Ephson said Mahama would have to repackage himself and form a strong alliance by choosing any of the National Democratic Congress’s presidential contenders as his running mate.
Speaking to Beatrice Adu on The Big Bulletin on Tuesday (19 April), Ephson said: “Mahama would have to repackage himself because a Mahama with the same running mate is going to be difficult [to win 2024 general elections]. He may have to form an alliance or perhaps, pick one of the [NDC presidential contenders] as his running mate.
“Because where Mahama is, he has the advantage of being marketed already. And Mahama with all his body language looks like retaining his running mate for 2020 [general elections]. If he does, I think he should forget 2024.”
