Nsawam-Adoagyiri law maker, Frank Annoh-Dompreh has condemned former President John Dramani Mahama for indicating that the 2024 general elections will be a do-or-die affair.
Mr Annoh-Dompreh described the comments by the presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in last year’s elections as irresponsible.
Mr Mahama had said that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has learned lessons from the 2020 general elections.
He said the next elections in 2024 will be a do-or-die affair, especially at the polling stations.
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 earrings 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.
Reacting to these comments in a tweet, Mr Frank Annoh-Dompreh said “It beats understanding how Mr. Mahama’s ‘Thank You Tour’ has degenerated into a platform for reckless commentary. How does a former President & former ECOWAS chair threaten electoral violence while belittling the ability of laws and the Supreme Courts to deliver justice?
“Mr. Mahama must own up to his irresponsible statements and offer an unqualified apology to the people of Ghana: the people he hopes to lead.”
