Speaking at the maiden Ghana Construction Industry Excellence Awards 2021 in Accra on Friday, September 10, Vice President Bawumia humorously encouraged the losers not to consider the awards a do-or-die affair in an apparent reference to Mr Mahama’s controversial comments.
“You know when you go for these competitions or awards, it is not do or die,” he said in jest. “So, we wish you better luck in 2022.”
“But seriously if you go to court to challenge an election result and you have no pink sheets, then your case will die,” he mentioned to abrupt derision in the auditorium.
Mr Mahama’s comments were made on Tuesday, September 7 at the start of the second phase of his Thank You tour.
In an interview with Techiman-based Akina Radio, the three-time National Democratic Congress (NDC) Presidential Candidate said events during and after voting in the 2020 elections have taught his party a lot of lessons to make the 2024 polls a do-or-die affair for them.
“We have learnt our lessons from happenings during the 2020 polls,” Mr Mahama said.
