John Mahama will win in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer battle, according to Daily Dispatch managing editor Ben Ephson, but he will lose the 2024 general elections.
He believes Mahama will have a more difficult time winning the presidency.
When speaking with Hello FM in Kumasi,Ephson said “Mahama will win but it is 2024 that will be his problem. Mahama will win the NDC slot, he will win easily but 2024 is going to be his problem.”
He claimed that if Mahama runs against the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2024, it would be a mistake.
Prior to it, he predicted that Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia will win the 2024 general elections as the NPP’s nominee.
Ben Ephson said that if Dr. Bawumia is chosen as the NPP’s flagbearer, he will go on to win the presidency in an interview with Onua TV.
“If Bawumia is made the flagbearer of NPP, he comes with two main advantages; that is many Christians feel comfortable with him even though he is a Muslim, and Muslims who used to vote for the NDC would switch and vote for NPP.
“The Muslims have now noticed that the NDC has taken them for granted for far too long because they don’t take Muslims for even running mate,” he asserted.
Ephson went on to say that he would be shocked if the Vice President received less than 60% of the vote in the NPP’s flagbearer election.
