The flag bearer of the Progressive People's Party (PPP) Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom has accused members of the ruling National Democratic Congress, NDC of having thanked God for the death of the late President John Mills.

Addressing a rally at Cape Coast, the business magnate said although some members of the NDC pretend to be hurt by Mills’ death, many rejoiced as his demise allowed them to retain power in the 2012 elections.

“Mills was our kinsman and he became the president. Some people criticized and attacked him until till he died. And some of the NDC people themselves thanked God that Mills died, is that not strange? And after his death they came back here to tell us to replace him with another person from the Central region. After all that they go about provoking us that if Mills had not died, the NDC wouldn’t be in government today....It appears as though they deliberately pushed him to the seat so they can commit the wrongs behind him," he said.

Dr. Nduom urged the people of the Central region to vote against the NDC in the December 7 election because they treated the late law professor unfairly.

Many Ghanaians and particularly, the opposition New Patriotic Party [NPP] have over the years mounted pressure on the government to make public the cause of President Mills’ death after alleging he was killed.

Posters of late President Prof. John Evans Atta Mills with imprint “Who Killed Atta Mills?” subsequently emerged at the NDC Campaign launch in Cape Coast last month.

The opposition NPP believed President Mahama who was then vice to Prof Mills must be interrogated for the death of his former boss.

But Central Regional Chairman of the NDC, Mr Allotey Jacobs has said that President Mahama is “innocent” and knows nothing about even the sickness which killed Prof. Mills.

President John Mahama during his recent tour of the Central region urged the chiefs and people to accord him the same support as they gave the late president, who was from the region, as he is committed to developing the region just as the late Mills.
