The 2020 Presidential Candidate of the Opposition National Democratic Congress His Excellency John Dramani Mahama has said that the National Democratic Congress has learned bitter lessons from the December 2020 general elections.

The Former President unequivocally said, the next elections in 2024 will be a do-or-die affair at the polling stations, because, the Party and its membership including Ghanaians who believe in a change and democratic style of governance shall be more vigilant at the polling stations than before.

Addressing the constituents at Techiman in a radio interview in the Bono East Region of Ghana on Tuesday, 7th September, 2021, John Dramani Mahama noted that, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has learnt its lessons from the 2020 elections and will ensure that, the right things are done during the general elections.

“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,” Former President John Dramani Mahama has said.

Speaking in the Twi Language and blended with English Language at Akina FM in Techiman, he added that, the 2020 elections taught the National Democratic Congress that elections can only be won at the polling stations, thus they will not let their guards down in the 2024 General Elections.

Prior to the December 2020 General Elections, the former President made similar statement as a sign of cautioning government and state institutions like the Electoral Commission of Ghana in order to ensure free and fair elections. He said, “The NDC shall match NPP boot for boot” in the general elections. This statement has energized the Ghanaian citizens ahead of the polls, but couldn’t materialize for him.

Meanwhile, his main political opponent His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in 2012 said, “You must understand that this party was formed by courageous people. Our leaders who formed this party that has now become the biggest political movement in Ghana were not cowards. So in 2012 we need to be courageous because all ‘die be die’. All die be die” Nana Addo said this when he was an opposition leader of the New Patriotic Party struggling for political power.
