Deputy Information Minister Pius Enam Hadzide has assured members of the Ghanaian public to rest assured that the Akufo-Addo government will get to the bottom of the death of late Professor Atta Mills.
Speaking on Okay FM monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Pius Hadzide said it is in the interest of all parties, including former President John Mahama that the issue is thoroughly investigated.
According to him, since the former President Mahama doesn’t want to be accused of killing his former boss, it is important that the issue is investigated once and for all.
“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.
He explained further: ”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”
Pius Hadzide said it is an indictment on Ghanaians as a whole that no investigation was undertaken in the aftermath of Mills’ death.
“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.
