The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Okakwei North, Fuseini Issah has said that should the NDC present ex-President
He said the NPP will have a huge advantage should that happen.
“Given the history of our dispensation, the cycle of 8 years and all that, I think that it will be a disadvantage to the NDC. If I were, although I will never be a Member of the NDC, I wouldn’t have supported that bid, but I think he is the one they think should lead", he said.
According to him, John Mahama will not be the best candidate for the party considering many factors including his performance when he served as president.
