The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) will use the controversial ‘do or die’ comment by former President Mahama as a campaign song in the 2024 general elections.
National Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi who disclosed this in said the grassroots have been energised about Mr. Mahama charged them to be vigilant at the polling station.
John Mahama came under pressure to retract and apologise for his ‘do or die’ comment which many said was a call to violence.
As a former President, civil society groups and political pundits expected him to rather call for a free and fair election.
They therefore appeal to Mr. Mahama to apologise. But he insisted that, ‘do or die’ is an idiomatic expression.
In support, Sammy Gyamfi said the former President must be commended for the do or die’ comment.
“Mahama’s do or die is a call to vigilance; he has done nothing wrong and we will not withdraw” he fumed.
The NDC National Communications Officer said they have resolved to print cloth and compose a song with the idiomatic expression ‘do or die’ ahead of 2024 elections.
“We are now going to move the do or die campaign to another level, compose songs with it and even print cloth. Those who have a problem with this either don’t know the character of Mahama as a peaceful person or don’t understand the meaning of do or die . . . we don’t care . . . we are determined to work within the remit of the law,” he opined.
