Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah has clarified former president John Dramani Mahama’s “do -or -die” comments saying the statement is innocuous.
This has nothing to do with bloodshed in the 2024 general elections, he maintained
According to the founder and leader of the Glorious Word Ministries International, there is nothing wrong with the comments attributed to the former president.
He said there is nothing untoward about the “do or die” comment adding that the former president said it in just.
“Do or die” is just like the “All- die- be- die” comment made by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo made in opposition.
He advised Ghanaians not to waste their precious time on the former president’s comments
The soothsaying pastor and avowed critic of the former president made this comment speaking on Accra-based Neat FM’s morning show hosted by Mark Jerry Osei Agyemang.
He explained that all that the former president was trying to explain his do-or-die comments was that in power he toyed with certain prophecies and predictions and that this time around he will not do so.
The former president just meant that this time around, he will be serious with some of these prophecies men of God gave him when he was in power since anointing can change hands.
“Do-or-die is in football, when I was a captain of a team in my heydays, we used to say do- or- die when we had a crucial match ahead of us”.
This does not mean we were going to the match grounds with cudgels and machetes among others, he posited.
This was a form of motivation to his supporters particularly members of the main opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) and for that matter members of the team to go all out and win the match.
It is in this same vein that the former president said what he said.
