The PPP has dared the NDC to provide Late President Mills’ autopsy report if they have no hand in his death.
General Secretary of the Progressive People’s Party’s (PPP), Murtala Mohammed has challenged the National Democratic Congress (NDC), to provide the autopsy report of Late President John Evans Atta Mills, if they have nothing to hide.
Mr. Mohammed dared the incumbent government at the first national rally of the PPP held at the Kawukudi Park at Nima in Accra on Thursday, September 15.
Addressing the crowd gathered at the rally, Mr. Mohammed made a fresh call to the NDC to release Late Mills’ autopsy report. He urged the people to demand the said report from President Mahama if he made an appearance at the region.
Mr. Mohammed’s comments come shortly after PPP presidential candidate Nduom, made a similar comment at a rally in Cape Coast. Nduom who was speaking about late Mills said that some NDC officials put on a public show of sorrow with Prof Mills’ demise but privately rejoiced over his passing, saying it had paved the way for their electoral triumph in 2012.
So far, the NDC has not responded to the demands as well as the comments made by the PPP
Late President Mills passed away on July 24, 2012, making him the first Ghanaian leader to die in office. Though he was said to have died from an illness, circumstances surrounding his death had been reportedly vague to the public and the media. This had led to several speculations that there may have been foul play in his death, especially as it occurred only six months to the 2012 polls.
Following his death, the country set out the date July 24, of every year, to honour his memory and remember his unprecedented achievements. Late Mills was born at Tarkwa in the Western region on July 21, 1944. He was a native of Ekumfi Otuam in the Central region.
He won the 2008 Presidential elections under the ticket if the NDC, defeating New Patriotic Party’s Nana Addo in a runoff. He was the third President of Ghana’s Fourth Republic. Late Mills died 3 years into his tenure, after an illness.
