Ghana's former Ambassador to India, Sam Pee Yalley, has said that the candidature of ex-President John Dramani Mahama will not affect the fortunes of the NDC in the 2024 elections as intimated by an EIU report. Sam Pee Yalley said that the prediction of the EIU (Economic Intelligence Unit) failed to account for the real factors that may lead to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) losing the upcoming general elections. “… what will change this election is the conduct of the Electoral Commission, to conduct a Free, Fee and Transparent Election, that is a critical part. What will change the electoral fortunes in this country is the use of the military to attack voters. However, the EIU noted that the NDC should revitalize its prospects with a flagbearer other than former President John Dramani Mahama.

If you want to host any e-programme, we have Peace FM, Neat FM and UTV but not on Okay FM because every programme must be hosted in the studio; in fact, we host ‘feeli feeli’ programmes on Okay FM.

Speaking to some tertiary students in Koforidua, at the ICGC Jesus Temple, he compared the salary of his niece, who works at an Agric bank, to that of his driver. "I took my niece to Agric Bank, a graduate and after taxes, she makes GHC1,700, a graduate.

According to him, the call from the AG and his continuous support for the justices of the Supreme Court especially poses a threat to the justice delivery system of the country. Speaking on Joy FM’s Top Story programme on April 21, Amaliba explained, “I totally disagree with the Attorney-General. He is [rather] increasingly becoming a danger to our justice delivery system. His conduct and comment and always coming to the defence of the judiciary will give the perception that the Executive and the Judiciary are ‘friends’ and it is rather more dangerous. This is often worsened in commentary on so-called political cases where some lawyers perceive the outcome to have far-reaching consequences for the objectives of political parties they sympathize with.”

This is the view of veteran journalist and pollster, Ben Ephson, who has joined calls for Mahama's 2020 running mate, Prof Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang to be dropped. According to Ephson, in an interview on Joy News, the former president must consider picking any of his political contenders for the flagbearership slot as his running mate. “Mahama would have to repackage himself because a Mahama with the same running mate is going to be difficult [to win 2024 general elections]. He may have to form an alliance or perhaps, pick one of the [NDC presidential contenders] as his running mate. And Mahama with all his body language looks like he is retaining his running mate for 2020 [general elections].
