0916977001450714816Pollster and Managing Editor of the Daily Dispatch, Ben Ephson has said former President John Mahama will be engaging in an exercise in futility if he decides to lead the NDC party Election 2020.

He said given the current strife in the NDC and the likely worsening of the situation, the ex leader is sure to lead the party into that crucial polls with a fragmented front.

The NDC lost the 2016 elections to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) led by the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Akufo-Addo beat the incumbent John Mahama with nearly a million votes to win the presidency with the NPP also having almost an absolute majority in parliament after snatching a large number of seats from the NDC.

Even as the Prof. Kwesi Botchway Committee investigating what led to the party’s shameful defeat continues with its work, members of the NDC have in the past few days traded accusations against each other.

While some leading members have accused the former President, John Mahama of leading the party into ditch, others believe the stashing of campaign cash by some senior party officers caused the defeat.

Speaking to Kasapa News Mr. Ephson stated that he’ll be very surprised should the ex president stage a comeback to lead the NDC that is going to worsen in the period ahead, it’s a taking a horse which is sick is used for another racing contest. If he comes back as the Flagbearer, he’s going to go into election 2020 with a weakened and disunited party. Should he decide to stage a comeback to lead the party I’II be very surprised. It’s very unlikely he’II come back.
