Managing Editor of the Daily Dispatch newspaper, Ben Ephson has advised against any move by the NDC to get the wife of the party’s late founder, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings to return to their fold.
The renowned pollster opined that such an attempt will annoy some members of the party.
If it will be recalled, Member of Parliament for the Klottey Korle Constituency and daughter of Ex-President Rawlings, Dr. Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings urged the party’s hierarchy to consider steps to reconcile with her estranged mother, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings to heighten the chances of the NDC in its bid to annex power in the 2024 general election.
But speaking exclusively to Kofi Adomah Nwanwanii on Angel Anopa Bofo, Ben Ephson said the return of Konadu to the fold of the NDC will rather dampen the fortunes of the party.
He said he doesn’t think the call will be received well because she left on her own volition, and if even the late President Rawlings could not prevent her from leaving, he thinks that if the party decides to rather go and beg her to come, it will create anger and annoyance within the party and that is going to affect them
Ben Ephson goes against rumors going round that the NDC have the idea of bringing Nana Konadu back to contest as the running mate for John Mahama.
The pollster further intimated that Konadu’s departure from the NDC has not been inimical to the party’s electoral fortunes. Therefore, efforts to smoke the peace pipe with her have no electoral significance.
