Felix Ofosu Kwakye, Former Deputy Information Minister

A former Deputy Minister of Information, Felix Kwakye Ofosu has said that former President John Dramani Mahama’s do-or-die comment does not mean he is violent.

He said Mr Mahama presided over the 2026 general election when he was president, an election he observed, was without casualties.

“President Mahama presided over the most peaceful elections in Ghana’s history in 2012 and 2016.Not a fly was hurt.,” he said in a Facebook in response to the reaction to Mr Mahama’s comments.

He added “President Akufo-Addo presided over the most violent and deadliest elections in Ghana’s history in 2020.Eight Ghanaians were slaughtered by state agents.”

Meanwhile, Founding President of Imani Africa, Mr Franklin Cudjoe has rejected the do-or-die affair comment made by Mr Mahama in relation to the 2024 elections.

He equated this comment to the widely condemned all-die-be-die comment made by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo when he was in opposition.

Mr Cudjoe in a Facebook post said “John Mahama, respectfully your ‘do or die’ comment is in the same league as Nana Addo’s ‘All die be die’. Not cool.

Mr Mahama had indicated that that the 2024 election is going to be a do-or-die affair at the polling stations.

He said that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has learned lessons from the 2020 general elections.

Speaking on Techiman-based Akina FM’s on Tuesday, September 7, 2021, as part of his thank-you tour, Mr Mahama said “This current president has made elections life and death for him, he uses his Delta forces and invisible forces enrolled in the security agencies.

“You see some Military and police officers and ask whether these are indeed officers. They wear ear rings and all sort of things and you can’t tell whether this is a police officer or a soldier

“We know they have infiltrated the security with some of their people

“Look at what happened at Techiman South the ways they shot at the crowd, it was intended to kill people.

“We hope that the next elections we won’t see scenes like that again.

“We have learnt our lessons from happenings during the 2020 polls. The 2024 elections will be won or lost at the polling station. It will be do-or-die at the polling stations. The right thing must be done during the polls. We will win the elections at the polling station and won’t wait for collation centre results nor petition the Supreme Court if aggrieved,” he said.
