Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah of Glorious Word and Power Ministry has reacted to the ‘do-or-die’ comment passed by former President John Dramani Mahama.
In his reaction, the well-known man of God defended the flag bearer of opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC). According to him the idiomatic expression made by Mahama is not a call to violence.
“Even Kotoko and Hearts supporters say ‘do or die’ so I don’t believe Mahama meant any harm. Just as I defended ‘all die be die’, I don’t think ‘do or die’ is a call to violence, he told Accra-based radio station, Okay FM.
Mr. Mahama during his ‘Thank You’ tour of parts of Ghana openly stated that the upcoming general election will be a ‘do-or-d!e’ affair at the polling stations. According to him, the NDC has learned its lessons and will make sure that the right thing is done in the 2024 election.
His comment has garnered a lot of reactions from Ghanaians with a section asking him to retract and apologize for the comment. Many believe is a call to violence.
