YOU CAN CONSULT THE DICTIONARY IF YOU STILL DON’T UNDERSTAND MAHAMA’S ‘DO OR DIE’ ENGLISH – Asiedu Nketiah fires critics

Asiedu Nketsiah, the General Secretary of the opposition party, National Democratic Congress, (NDC), has advised critics who dragging their flagbearer, John Mahama to resort to the dictionary if they don’t understand Mahama’s ‘Do or Die’ statement he made earlier.

Mr Mahama has come under pressure after announcing that the 2024 elections will be a ‘do or die” affair at the polling station as far as the NDC are concerned. Many have called for him to retract the statement since it does not promote political tolerance.

However, defending the former presidential candidate in an interview on Citi FM monitored by Ghbase.com, Asiedu Nketsiah argued that John Mahama was not wrong for using such words as it was devoid of malice.

“What has Mahama done wrong? I think people want to disrupt us from the good things we are doing. When we say ‘do or die’ assignment, it means you must use all your energies to do something, I don’t see how this is problematic unless for those who do not understand or fail to understand the obvious.

“He was communicating in the English language. And in the English language, there are idiomatic expressions. Whoever does not understand it, may look it up in the dictionary. It is the Queen’s language.”

“We don’t think this should be something people should be worried about at all. So if no one is interested in destroying the results,  why should that statement scare anybody? I don’t see why people should make a fuss about this thing at all. I am so surprised about this hypocrisy.

“People are trying to make mountain out of a molehill.  If someone has issues with this, he should go and blame his English teacher, he should not be worrying us” he said.
