John Mahama’s Do or Die comments is currently trending. Indeed, it is the most viral phrase over the week. It is not that this phrase is new to Ghanaians but coming from a former leader and the seriousness of the 2024 elections, many say this will be a recipe for violence. John Mahama has reiterated that he will not retract his comments because he was only calling for vigilance from NDC polling agents.
This morning, Saturday, September 11, 2021, Joseph Kpemka, NPP former MP for Tempane and former deputy Attorney General joined Alhassan Suhuyini and Professor Ransford Gyampo on TV3’s ‘The Keypoints’. The panel lead by Dzifa Bampoe discussed the viral comments of John Mahama.
At one point, Dzifa queried Joseph Kpemka if Do or Die isn’t same as All Die be die. How can you justify All Die Be Die and condemn this? Dzifa queried. This question infuriated the latter who felt that comparison shouldn’t be made.
“Madam Dzifa, with the greatest of respect to you, this morning the topic that was given to me was a review of Do or Die. That was the topic given to me. I was told we will talk about Do or die and not all die be die. There was no indication that the topic for discussion will be All die be die. No one gave me that topic for discussion. And besides when it came it was given extensive discussion then. It is now 10 years. The focus is now on the statement by the former president” Mr. Kpemka said.
It is interesting to know that those who condemned Akufo-Addo’s All die be die now praise John Mahama’s Do or Die and those who praise All Die be die are now condemning Do or die. At the end of the day those 2 leaders will not be at the polling stations to monitor what is happening. So who ensures all die be die or do or die?
