2024 elections will be a do-or-die affair at the polling stations – Mahama


Former President John Dramani Mahama says the 2024 elections will be a do-or-die affair, especially at the polling stations.

According to him, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has learned lessons in 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 the NDC acted diplomatically amidst the military intimidations and use of pro-vigilante groups.

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

“We have learned 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 center results nor petition the Supreme Court if aggrieved.”

2024 elections will surely be a wait-and-see.
