Deputy Information Minister, Pious Enam Hadzide, has said the Akufo-Addo led administration will get to the root of His Excellency, Professor Atta Mills death so Ghanaians can know what actually killed him.
According to him, it will be in the best interest of all to ascertain the real cause of Atta Mills death to stop verbal attacks on some important personalities in the country who have been linked to the death of the one time President of Ghana.
“Currently, the lawyers of the former President have written to the CID that they are being accused, which shows the former President Mahama even wants an investigation. When this matter is investigated, that is how we can bring finality to the matter.” The deputy minister said.
Speaking in an interview on Okay FM, Mr Hadzide indicated that it is an indictment on Ghanaians as a whole that no investigation was undertaken in the aftermath of Mills’ death.
”Why I think there should be an investigation is because one he is a citizen and secondly he was a sitting President and so Ghanaians are entitled to an explanation into the death so that if there was any mistake made, we can learn from them and prevent the recurrence of something like this”.
“The death of every individual is very crucial and the death of every Ghanaian must become a matter of significance to all of us. Especially the death of a President. John Evans Atta Mills was President at the time he passed and so I feel it will be an indictment on all of us as a nation if we are asked what caused the death of our President and we are unable to give any good response. We have enthroned kings but, likely, we do not have any arrangement to protect them since it is such an important personality, I think we should investigate.” He said.
