As the 2020 elections approach, some high profile financiers of the National Democratic Congress have increasingly become skeptical about the chances of John Mahama in the 2020 Presidential Elections.
WhatsApp Communication sighted by this paper between two high profile financiers of the party (names withheld for now) indicates that they have lost hope in the party’s Flagbearer.
His inability to clearly articulate how another four years under his leadership will differ from the last time he was president, was their main source of frustration.
These financiers in the NDC indicated that he has struggled to convince the good people of Ghana to Vote for him and the party come 2020.
As a result, financing Mahama’s campaign for 2020 is a waste of resources and investment since he will not win the elections in 2020.
An aspect of the WhatsApp message from the renowned party financier, a former minister in the Mahama administration reads “I honestly don’t think Mahama has a chance in 2020. I will brief you properly when I return”. The partner in the conversation replied “Thought the numbers are improving?” He replied, “Are numbers have remained stubbornly stagnant “
Mahama lost the 2016 elections miserably to the governing NPP led by Nana Akufo Addo. Akufo Addo garnered 5.716,609 votes representing 53. 84% to snatch the presidency from Mahama who secured 4.713,277 votes representing 44.40%. The NDC also lost more than 40 parliamentary seats to the NPP which gave the latter majority in parliament. Political analysts have described as unfortunate the decision to maintain John Mahama’s as Flagbearer of NDC. This is due to the bad leadership displayed during his term as president which saw Ghana’s economy retrogress
disgracefully between 2012 and 2016
Though the NDC had several chances to transform the country and its economy, it failed to take advantage of the opportunities
