The Central regional Chairman of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Allotey Jacobs says President John Dramani Mahama was oblivious of late President John Atta Mills’ deteriorating health leading to the latter’s demise.
According to him, only four people including him knew about late President Mills’ ill health. The cause of the untimely demise of President Mills in 2012 has been a mystery, as Ghanaians crave for answers.
Posters demanding answers regarding the death of the late president emerged in some areas in Cape Coast, the Central regional capital during the NDC campaign launch in that region on Sunday.
The posters were sighted at places such as Pedu junction, Abura, Adisadel, Moree barrier, Aggrey Memorial SHS, Cape Coast-Takoradi highway and around new the Cape Coast stadium, the venue for the campaign launch. It was, however, not clear who were behind the posters.
Reacting to demands of the said posters on Accra-based Neat FM’s ‘Ghana Montie’ show, Mr. Jacobs explained that he together with three others knew the cause of President Mills’ death.
“…Let me confirm this,” he told the show host Akwasi Aboagye “we are just four people who know about Professor Mills sickness. His two siblings [Dr Cadman Atta Mills and Sammy Atta Mills], myself, and his long time bodyguard, Mr. ASP Adadei. Prof. Mills was dear to our hearts; he shared his frustration, sickness and development with us [the four].”
According to him, President Mahama has no knowledge of his boss’ failing health and that “People don’t know about this so they just get up and malign innocent people in this country.”
He asked: “…What at all has President Mahama done? What sin has he committed? Just because God has anointed him to be president?”
He said those demanding answers as to the cause of President Mills’ death “are just hurting the family [Mills family]. The man is dead and gone. Curse will be upon those behind this [he accused the NPP]. Death will run through their camp.”
