    ‘Do or die’ doesn’t mean we’ll beat people with sticks and kill them - Mahama

    Former President John Dramani Mahama has said his comment that the 2024 elections will be a “do or die” affair has been misinterpreted.

    He explained that the do or die in the context he was speaking meant the election will be crucial for the NDC.

    The former President’s do or die comment has been met with harsh criticism from his opponents in government.

    The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), has petitioned the CID to arrest Mr Mahama over the comment as it considers his comment treasonable and offensive conduct to breaches of the peace.

    But addressing party supporters in the Eastern Region on April 12, Mr Mahama allayed fears the NDC will cause mayhem during the 2024 polls.

    He, however, maintained that the 2024 general elections will be a crucial one the NDC has to win.

    “We are not going to joke in the upcoming 2024 general elections. That’s why I said it’s a do-or-die affair. I made these comments and some people have twisted my words saying I meant we will be butchering and killing people with cutlasses and guns.

    “No, that’s not the ‘do or I die’ I meant. Do or die means the election is very crucial one for NDC to win, so we will not joke with it. It doesn’t mean that we will beat people with sticks and kill them,” Mr. Mahama explained.
