Managing Editor of the Daily Dispatch, Ben Ephson has shared his thought on Zenator Rawlings’ call on the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to bring her mother, Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings.
He strongly believes that the NDC will lose more votes should Nana Konadu rejoin the party.
“In 2020, she got less than 6,600 votes,” Ben Ephson stated on Friday on TV3 New Day Show.
He reiterated that the departure of Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings didn’t affect the arty in terms of numbers during the just ended election.
“It tells you that her departure from the party did not affect the party numerically. Politics is about numbers and if she decides to take a step in rejoining the party, I will be shocked and people might say ok.
“But if the NDC makes the attempt to cajole her to come back, the party will be worse off for it.”
Dr. Zenator Rawlings, the MP for Klottey Korley Constituency in her remark at her father’s (Jerry John Rawlings) one year anniversary called on the leadership of the NDC to bring back her mother to the party.
But Mr. Ephson feels the manner in which Zenator made the call was wrong.
“She herself knew the slippery ground she was treading. She should have been a bit more diplomatic, finding ways and means but throwing it out there that the party should go and bring her mother was a bit undiplomatic and it’s going to harden people’s attitude.”
