The Director of Communications of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Yaw Buaben Asamoa has said the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and its flagbearer John Mahama are just desperate for power.
According to him, the opposition is doing everything just to get power and destroy the economy.
John Mahama in an interview on Techiman-based Akina FM on Tuesday, September 7, 2021 said the NDC will not slack in the next elections.
“You see some military and police officers and ask whether these are indeed officers. They wear earrings and all sorts 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.”
But Yaw Buaben Asamoa exclusively told Kwaku Dawuro on Anopa Nkomo on Accra-based Kingdom FM 107.7 that the comment of the former President is dangerous.
“This issue of ‘do or die’, I believe that we need to tread cautiously. I wasn’t expecting the former president to be drumming home, this issue of ‘do or die’. In fact, it is quite dangerous, honestly speaking.
“It is quite dangerous in the sense that during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-elections, the NDC came up with this slogan of ‘do or die, do or die’ and what happened eventually is part of history, a lot of casualties.
“Certainly, they cannot intimidate us, certainly not, mark my words certainly not. We’re all prepared to protect and defend the democratic credentials of this country, however, if they want to push us to the wall, to humiliate us and bully us, that cannot be possible.”
