Hon. Kennedy Agyapong has predicted a possible win for John Mahama in the 2024 presidential elections.
According to the Assin Central MP, Mahama has garnered enough figures in the 2020 elections which means he can win the election in 2024.
He took the opportunity to advise the NPP not to underestimate John Mahama and the NDC in the next general elections.
“Don’t… underestimate President Mahama because he lost by over a one-million-vote margin and in the last election, it reduced to 500 [thousand]. It tells you that he is a force to reckon with, so don’t….mount on ancient platitudes that we won in 2016, 2020, and 2024; is a done deal.
When you look at the reduction, it tells you that he is still a force to reckon [with] and we can only do this when we unite the party because when you look at the number of MPs who lost their seats, it’s all because the party people were disgruntled about the MPs so the question is have we been able to resolve that? If you don’t do all these things and now you start campaigning, it will still affect us.”
The outspoken lawmaker, however, warned that their reelection is dependent on Akufo-Addo’s performance.
“Our third term will be dependent on the performance of President Akufo-Addo’s second term which he has just started so, where from these ambitions that we don’t want to help him run this country effectively, [and] competently for people to feel that yes there is government then out of the blue they are emerging from all corners that they want to be president. I’m afraid for the party.”
