Ofosu-Ampofo added that, the NDC was in good health and ready to slug it out with any political party in the next general elections because it was going to be a do or die affair.
He explained that his comment was not to beat war drums but a call on party members to be alert at polling stations on election day.
“The party NDC as I speak is very strong, in good health. It is a horse that is prepared to go for the war and win the war. I can assure you that in 2024, whatever it takes, it is do or die. It is not a fight. It means that if it means we will sleep and cook at our polling stations till the results of the election are declared and the true results are transmitted [we will do that]. As for that one we are not going to compromise. We may even go to the polling station to pitch camp there a day before the elections. Do or die means at the polling station we will ensure that we are diligent, we are vigilant,” Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo stated.
Ofosu-Amofo borrrowed the exact words of former President John Mahama in September last year. He mentioned that the 2024 election was going to be a ‘do or die affair’ at the polling stations.
The public lambasted him for making such an unfortunate comment because such a comment shouldn’t have proceeded from a person of his caliber but the former president maintained that it was an idiomatic expression.
