PPP to investigate death of Mills if voted into office

The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) remains focused on investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of president John Evans Atta Mills despite the insults from apologists of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).

According to the party the absence of a comprehensive investigation into the death of the then sitting president fuels the perception that something untoward occurred leading to his untimely death.

National Secretary, Murtala Mohammed said the Party will establish a commission of inquiry to look into the death of the former president to bring finality to the matter and put to rest all kinds of suspicions.

This harmless call to have this done does not warrant the vicious attacks from some members of the NDC on our flag bearer and the party.

"Professor Mills was a bona fide citizen and also the president of Ghana when he died and we believe he deserves an investigation into his death to restore dignity to his person, the high office of the President of the Republic of Ghana, his family and the people of the Central Region," he said.

He said the objective of the party is to prevent what happened to a sitting president from happening again.

"We are interested in protecting all our presidents from falling victim to the circumstances of the death of the professor," he said.

"A full scale investigation and the recommendations thereof will make our nation great and strong and prepare us to handle future situations more carefully and in a manner that promote sacrifice, service and loyalty to God and country from our future leaders," he added.
