2024 will be "do or die" affair - Mahama
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh has reported in a separate story that John Mahama has repeated his assertion that he and the NDC will take all the necessary risks to ensure victory in the 2024 elections.
He told party supporters in the Bono Region on March 11, 2023, that the next elections will be a "do or die" and "boot for boot" affair.
In 2021, the NDC flagbearer aspirant made a similar comment after the 2020 elections, stressing that the NDC allowed itself to be cheated by the governing NPP in that election.
He told party delegates in Dormaa East in the Bono Region as part of his campaign tour ahead of the presidential primaries on May 13, that the party will not be cheated by the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) as it happened in the last elections.
Mahama believes only an NDC government headed by him as president can solve the crisis the country has found itself in under the current Nana Akufo-Addo-led administration.
