Popular National Democratic Congress (NDC) serial caller, Osei Yaw Nketia, affectionately called Dr. Asemfoforo, suspects former President John Evans Atta Mills did not die of natural causes.
He called for an immediate coroner’s inquest to determine the cause of death of the former president.
The NDC serial caller also charged President John Mahama to sanction the exhumation of the body of former President Mills from the grave at the ‘Asomdwee’ Park in Accra for the medical investigation to be carried out.
Dr. Asemfoforo insisted that medical checks on former President Mills’ body would go a long way to clear the name of President Mahama.
He disclosed that several people in the country have accused President Mahama of complicity in the death of former President Mills.
He said some critics alleged that the sitting president played a role in the death of ex-President Mills to pave way for him (Mahama) to ascend the highest seat of the land.
Though Dr. Asemfoforo believes President Mahama is innocent, he said the coroner would help unravel the mystery.
The NDC serial caller, in an interview with Kessben FM, noted that President Mahama should direct the relevant authorities to send the body overseas to properly determine the cause of death.
This, he stated, would defuse the hullabaloo generated after the death of the former Ghana leader.
Explaining further, Dr. Asemfoforo said ‘I know President Mahama has no hand in his sudden death.’
He claimed he initially suggested that some gods be consulted to determine if President Mills died in a natural way but nobody supported him.
Dr. Asemfoforo lauded the family of President Mills for taking the decision to consult some deities to deal ruthlessly with the culprits.
Touching on other pressing national issues, he slammed the Mahama administration for recklessly spending the taxpayers’ money, stressing that the government’s decision to send some pastors to Israel recently was unjustified.
He said the recent labour agitations in the country could collapse the NDC government.
Dr. Asemfoforo, who claimed to be a staunch NDC member, observed that President Mahama had surrounded himself with some people whose actions and inactions had tainted the image of the ruling government
Dr. Asemfoforo also tasked President Mahama to address the recent Guinea fowl scandal, stressing that some mishaps by the Presidency had armed the critics to further lambast NDC members.
