Akamba has dismissed the prediction by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) that the NDC can win the 2024 presidential election only if they field a new candidate other than John Dramani Mahama.
He insisted that, Mr Maham is the best candidate for the 2024 election because of his history in politics, adding that it would be unwise for the party to introduce a new candidate, as that candidate would first have to be accepted by the party’s grassroots before preparing to compete with a government in power.
“I think EIU got it wrong. They have been in this business for a very long time and they have produced so many negative outcomes in their election predictions such as the American election which they predicted a massive win for Mr. Donald Trump. I doubt their credibility in this matter.
NDC cannot go into this election with any other candidate rather than John Dramani Mahama.
“We need to ride on the shoulders of John Mahama who has been in the system for a very long time and who has the capacity to win power for us in 2024.I cannot understand their methodology for saying that we can only win if we introduce a new face,” Joshua Akamba said in an interview monitored by silvernews.
He described the report as "bogus" adding that the same institution predicted wide margin win for NPP in the PARLIAMENTARY and Presidential but to him, the NDC won the 2020 election but unfortunately stole for the NPP by the EC.
