Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen, has said his party will not be intimidated by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) ahead of the 2024 general elections.

He dared former President John Dramani Mahama who has said the next elections will be a do-or-die affair at the polling station, to bring it on.

Speaking on the midday news on 3FM Wednesday, September 8, Nana Obiri Boahen who is also a private legal practitioner said “ For me, the bottom line is that do or die or die or do or do and die, it means one thing. It means to be forewarned is to be forearmed.

“Some of us, we belong to a tradition which you cannot make the slightest attempt to humiliate or bully us, so he should bring it on. Let them bring it on.”

Mr. Mahama had indicated that that the 2024 election is going to be a do-or-die affair at the polling stations.

He said that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has learned lessons from 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 “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 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.
