NDC has been told that the MP for Tamale South, Haruna Iddrisu, has a better chance of bringing the party back into power than former President John Mahama

The opposition NDC has been advised to replace former President Mahama with the present majority leader, Haruna Iddrisu as its flagbearer in 2024.

According to the member of the NPP, Nana Ansah Obofour, the Tamale South legislator stands a better chance than former President Mahama who is still contemplating running again.

His comments come after the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) projected victory for opposition NDC in the 2024 elections even though the polls are years away.

“The next parliamentary and presidential elections are due in 2024. Under the constitutionally mandated term limits, Mr. Akufo-Addo cannot run for a third term. Mr. Mahama is reportedly considering whether to run again, but we expect the NDC to seek to revitalize its prospects with a fresh candidate.

“After two terms of NPP government, we expect the NDC to win the 2024 presidential election and to gain a small majority in parliament,” the latest report of the firm obtained said.

Reacting to this on Accra-based Happy FM, Obofour said the Tamale South MP is a strong candidate and best equipped to replace Mr. Mahama.

“Haruna Iddrisu will do far better than Mahama. I learned Mahama is even afraid of him joining the race. It will be better if the NDC replaces Mahama with him.

Meanwhile MP for Builsa South, Dr. Clement Apaak has said the NDC is likely to lose the 2024 general elections if they present another candidate aside from John Dramani Mahama.

He said the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) stands to make history by breaking the 8-year ruling barrier if the opposition party makes a mistake of replacing the former president as its leader.

Mr Apaak said the NDC does not have the resources and time to run with a new candidate.
