President Mills Was Only Sincere About His Health…98% Of What Mills Said Were Lies – Sir John


    President John Evans Atta Mills’ meeting with the media for the second time in his first term of office may have ended, but Ghanaians surely have not seen the last of it, particularly the assessment of his administration, his expression and demeanor at the press interaction.
    General Secretary of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, popularly known as Sir John in his evaluation says about 98% of what President said at the “Action Year” Editors Forum were a complete pack of lies, hence his decision not to personally award himself any marks.
    To him, most of the answers President Mills gave at the media encounter should be taken with a pinch of salt, adding that the President failed to show any sign of sincerity in responses. He believes that the only question President Mills answered sincerely was about his state of health.
    He added that he was impressed with the answer President Mills gave concerning marking or grading himself. According to him, President Mills could not have possibly marked himself because there was nothing there to be marked on his two years in power.
    “With everything he said, about 98 percent was untrue and most of the questions were not answered well so I am not surprised he said he could no longer mark himself because if he marks himself, things will not go well besides, he has nothing to mark about himself,” he noted.
    Speaking in an interview on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo Morning Show, the NPP Chief Scribe felt that President Mills was not precise with most of the answers he gave and at certain times simply ‘dodged’ the question.
    Obviously not impressed, Sir John was particularly unhappy with the response given by President Mills when asked to lend credence to or deny grapevine reports that his government intends going after the Chief Justice, Mrs. Georgina Theodora Wood.
    According to him, it was disappointing for the President to make light of serious concerns raised by journalists.
    “President Mills swerved all the questions he was asked and simply kidded with some of the issues. Instead of going straight to the point in giving answers to specific questions, he just beat about the bush, mostly. The part where someone asked about his health was the only time he was frank with himself in answering the question,” he said.
