Former President John Dramani Mahama has disclosed that he will not retract his controversial ‘do or die’ comment about the pending 2024 elections.
To the best knowledge and understanding of John Dramani Mahama, the statement he made is not about violence but a mere idiomatic expression.
Speaking on Moonlite FM in Sunyani, he said he stands by his comment.
“It is an idiomatic expression. In the English Language, we have idioms in there. I think those who left school early do not understand idiomatic expressions. Do or die means a critical assignment you have, and you must do the needful or perish. What it means is that [officials of the] NDC shouldn’t wait and go to the Supreme Court again.”
“So we have to do whatever we need to do at the polling station and the collation centres. So I won’t retract. The next election for NDC is going to be a do-or-die affair because we have to do the right thing at the polling stations.
“So I’m telling all our party executives that they must be at the polling stations and make sure the right thing is done. They must also be at the collation centres and make sure the right thing is done.”
