General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia says he does not understand why people are making a case from John Dramani Mahama’s ‘do or die’ comment.
According to him, ‘do or die’ is an English idiom which can be reference from the dictionary.
He said all persons who have issues with it must blame their English teachers.
“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 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 added.
