Though the country has been plunged into a sad mood as Ghanaians mourn and reminisce about the deeds of the late President John Evans Atta Mills, a member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) however has called for an investigation into death of the late President and the source of funding for organizing his one year anniversary.
Kwabena Sarpong, an ardent member of the opposition party, wants the family of the late President to hold an inquest into his death in order prove to Ghanaians the exact cause of his death since to him, it appears that some government officials are deluding the citizenry into believing that nothing probably happened resulting in the late President’s ‘untimely’ death.
Claiming that his death may not have occurred naturally, the ardent NPP member was of the view that officials within the government threw dust into the eyes of Ghanaians to believe that the late President’s sickness aggravated, thus resulting in his death.
Explaining on Oman FM on Wednesday, he stressed that “President Mills was not the same person Ghanaians elected. Because the man was sick, he did not know what was going on around him. But they were lying to us that the man wasn’t sick. They never admitted that the man is sick,” and so, slammed Dr. Cadman Mills for supposedly peddling lies about the cause of his brother’s death.
“I think Cadman Mills does not like his brother because he knows very well that the man was ill. But he couldn’t advise him that he is sick, don’t kill yourself…Rawlings was saying the right thing. Maybe if they had not lied about the man, probably this man would still be alive,” he asserted.
He also lambasted the Mahama government for asking for donations from the citizens and further soliciting financial assistance from private entities to organize the anniversary.
He therefore called on the Planning Committee to render an account to Ghanaians on their source of funding for the anniversary, stressing that “it’s not right that we are commemorating the anniversary of our late President and we have to beg money from people to organize it. It doesn’t speak well of us as a nation…”
