The Informer – Changing Amissah-Arthur Will Be Suicidal – Ephson
Spio For 2016 Veep Slot? Changing Amissah-Arthur Will Be Suicidal
A Pollster and Managing Director of the Daily Dispatch newspaper, Mr. Ben Ephson, has said that it would be a politically suicidal for President John Dramani Mahama, to change mr. Kwesi Amissah-Arthur as his running mate, for the 2016 elections. “Why do you change a winning team?” He asks.
According to him, even Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, who has lost the last two elections, has not changed his running-mate for his third-time bid, because his votes have been improving with Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, as his running-mate. He added, saying, “The disadvantage in taking a fresh/new running-mate is that, the person would not have passed what is known as the ‘scandals test” further, Ben Ephson said, “everybody and for matter all politicians have skeletons in his cupboard; and that, for a fresh person partnering President Mahama for the NDC’s 2016 slot, would mean that, the party, instead of concentrating on its election campaign, would have to spend some of its time defending its new running-mate.
Vice-President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur is well known, a nice gentlemen, and will do the magic for the NDC, come 2016, when he is maintained. In fact, enough will be thrown at him and that politically will not help the NDC”.
On rumours that President Mahamah intends to change Amissah-Arthur for another Fante, he said; “has that Fante got the support of all the factions in the NDC? President Mahama is too experience to rock the boat that is sailing smoothly; particularly, enjoying the support of the leadership of the party”.
In his conclusion Mr. Ephson said, “the NDC better maintained Mr. Kwesi Amissah-Arthur and/or be prepared to face the political ramification for the 2016 elections, should it go for a new running-mate”.
NPP Make Wereko-Brobbey Important In Ghana – Karbo
The formal National Youth Organiser of the opposition New Patriotic Party [NPP], Mr. Anthony Abayefa Karbo, has noted that, but for the NPP, Dr. Charles Yves Wereko-Brobbey, would be nobody in Ghana. A fierce critic of his party, Dr. Wereko-Brobbey, who has been against many decisions taken by the NPP – for example, the decision to petition the Supreme Court after the elections in 2012, as well as recently condemning the NPP National Executive Committee [NEC] for suspending its National Chairman, Mr. Paul Afoko – referred to that action as coup d’ètat.
Commenting on the indefinite suspension handed Afoko, Dr. Wereko-Brobbey, pleaded also that, his own suspension years ago, which has ended, be extended till thy kingdom come. But to the NPP Deputy Communications Director, the former Chief Executive Officer [CEO] of the Volta River Authority [VRA} under the John Kufour administration, needs no further suspension by the party, since he is not considered a member.
Stop Wasting Our Time With your Veep Ambition (Okyeame Tells Spio!)
So, Ekow Spio Garbrah is still allowing his ego to orbit in dreamy realms? So, Spio Garbrah, is dreaming that he can become the Vice President on the ticket of the great National Democratic Congress [NDC]? So, who are the people deceiving Spio that, he has a dog’s chance of ever leading the NDC? So, Spio, is still not aware that he CAN NEVER lead the NDC?
So, can a standard man, allow his ego to mislead him the way Spio’s ego is misleading him? Damn!!! Somebody should, please, tell Spio that he is making a nuisance of himself via the extremely ugly noises coming from his so-called “Spio fan Club/Youth For Mahama!”
