General Secretary of the governing NPP John Boadu says 2020 flag bearer of the NDC, John Mahama’s resort to his violent comment all die be die is a sign of Mahama’s desperation to return to power.
John Boadu described the comment as distasteful which should not be given a in the country’s democracy. “It is a distasteful comment that does not belong in our fast maturing electoral democracy. We note that John Mahama stubbornly refuses to retract. Rather, he is seeking refuge in semantics and grammar, struggling to explain the impossible” He said
Mr. Boadu also explained that there’s panic in the NDC camp due to the massive infrastructure development projects initiated by the Akufo Addo government. “we are not surprised, being in opposition and desperate to comeback to power, John Mahama must be panicking at the pace at which the Akufo-Addo government is moving”
During John Mahama’s ‘Thank You’ tour, John Mahama reiterated his suspicion on Tuesday, September 7, that; “we were clearly robbed, but we accepted the verdict for the sake of peace.”
“But I want to state here that the next elections would be won or lost at the polling station. So at the polling station, it will be ‘do or die’. I am not saying ‘all die be die’. I’m saying it will be ‘do or die’ because the right thing must be done,” he told Techiman-based Akina FM.
Addressing the media, John Boadu observed that “the President continues commission of completed projects and initiate new ones on his working tours of the country has received fervent support from the masses. “Everywhere the President goes, there is fervent support for his policies which are visibly changing lives Infrastructure is springing up fast in the new regions. One hundred and six 1D1F factories are working full blast with many more in the pipeline.. Agenda 111 has been launched with strong prospects to change the health sector to another level. In confirmation of these works, the IMF has granted Ghana one billion dollars in Special Drawing Rights without any conditionality whatsoever.”
In the view of John Boadu, Mr. Mahama has no alternative solutions in addressing the problems faced Ghanaians and must not be given a chance to return to office. “Former President Mahama is desperate. He has no blueprint to match the progress he is seeing. He has no alternative for Ghanaians. Indeed, if he had something of substance to sell, he would not resort to the language of ‘do or die’. “Incompetent and desperate John Mahama should be given no space to come to corridors of power” He added
