NDC Flagbearership Race: Dela Coffie Tips Duffour Ahead Of Mahama

Dela Coffie, who is a member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has revealed that fresh polls put Kwabena Duffour ahead of former president John Mahama.

In a post shared on his official Facebook page he wrote;

"Fresh polls put Duffuor ahead of Mahama to lead NDC 

The overwhelming demography of NDC voters and those who backed the Mills bloc hold the belief that the NDC needs a new leadership approach to issues.

Indeed, six in ten people in the NDC support the calls for Dr Kwabena Duffuor to lead the party into the 2024 general elections.

The survey conducted by the 'Ghana Democracy Forum' on 'Clubhouse' last night states that the NDC needs a project for political power led with verve from the top and executed relentlessly at every level. And the respondents believe Dr Kwabena Duffuor is the man to lead the NDC out of its current electoral quagmire. 

When asked directly whether they thought the NDC needed a change of direction, 46% said they favoured the change, 41% said no, and 13% said they were indifferent.

Asked about their preference of a leader, 66% of 2,000 NDC voters sampled believe in Dr Kwabena Duffuor's ideas and leadership. While 34% acknowledge that the party needs fresh blood going forward but don't believe Duffuor is the man for the party at this opportune time.

The survey shows that support for Mahama is plunging, among the NDC "old guards," propelling Dr Kwabena Duffuor to a decent lead. It also reveals fresh doubts about Mahama within the NDC and broad objections to his 2024 candidacy just two days after the National Executive Committee of the party slated February 2023 for the presidential primaries.

What this means is that NDC voters are anxious about the prospect of a Duffuor presidency, underscoring the desire for a change in our politics.

Interesting times ahead for the politics of the NDC!!"
