If We Lose 2024 Elections, It Will Be Difficult To Revive NDC Again - Nii Lante Enforces Do Or Die

The MP for Odododiodio constituency and former minister for Sport under the NDC government, Hon Nii Lante Vandarpauye explain what the former President Mahama meant by "Do or die" during his Thank You tour. In an interview on Citi TV, the former minister said that the statement meant no harm to Ghanaians.

He said the circumstances under which the NDC lost the 2020 elections call for a revival of spirits within the members of the party and this is the reason for the statement made by the former President. He added that the future of the NDC depends on the 2024 elections and if they lose again, members will lose hope in the party and it will be difficult to revive the party again.

Therefore the "do or die" statement is not moving that them to violence but for them to be vigilant, more serious, committed and loyal to the party. The former minister reminisced when he was a sports journalist and said he together with other renowned sports journalists used that phrase a lot but it did not mean they were moving people into violent acts.

He explained that "all die be die" means whether you kill someone or you die out of violence, it means nothing. But "do or die" means the future is at stake and you have seen your objectives, therefore if you do not attain it you will perish.
