I will not apologize for my boot-for-boot comment – John Mahama

John Mahama has stated emphatically that he will not bow down to any pressure from some section of Ghanaians and the media to apologize over his boot-for-boot comment he made while addressing some NDC delegates in the Adaklu Constituency of the Volta Region on Thursday, 31 January 2019.

We are not going to joke in 2020, and I’m sounding a warning to the NPP – we are going to match them boot for boot…” – He said whiles addressing the NDC delegates.

His reckless comment triggered the National Peace Council chairman, Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Asante to call him to apologize to Ghanaians.

However, in a new development, the former number one man of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama said: It is rather me they are accusing… they say I should come and apologise, the one who has been shot. I should come and apologise? Meanwhile, you won’t condemn the one who shot. We will not tolerate this in Ghana”.

But as soon as their preferred [NPP] government comes into power, everything is right: ‘family and friends [government]’ is okay as long as they are qualified. You think NPP will be in power forever,” he added.

We are serving them notice. They shall never deploy such a force in any election in Ghana again. We will resist it. You haven’t seen armed men running away before? When the power of the people comes after you, you will run. This is the ‘all die be die’ philosophy at work. We won’t accept ‘all die be die’ in this country.

They are not supposed to have hoodlums dressed in police uniforms using police vehicles and firing bullets at our innocent civilians.

He is hoping to lead the opposition NDC to the forthcoming 2020 Election.
