The Krontihene of Ejura Sekyedumase, Nana Agyapa II, has stated that there is a deliberate attempt by some Ghanaians to misconstrue the ‘Do or die’ comment by former President, John Mahama.
Nana Agyapa II, expressed surprise about the deliberate twisting of an idiom used by the former President to demonstrate the commitment of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to plug any loopholes that contributed to the party’s inability to win the 2020 general elections.
In his remarks to welcome the former President and his entourage to the palace of the Frantehene as part of his tour of the Ashanti Region, the Krontihene expressed his misgivings over the twist and noted that Mahama is just rallying supporters.
“These days even when you speak well, some misconstrue it. It is unfortunate because the former President is only rallying his supporters that, at the next elections the party would be vigilant and not be caught unawares. All persons given responsibility should focus and execute their task flawlessly to get their expected results.
“There is nothing wrong with what he said. But others have deliberately misconstrued his statement. But don’t lose hope, I know that good times are ahead. I am very happy that you have seen that it is not the court you would go to seek redress but that you and your party members will be vigilant and put in the right measures so that your victory is not stolen.”Nana Agyapa II
