More NPP MPs Expressing Interest In Probe Into Atta Mills’ death - Annoh-Dompreh
The Majority Chief Whip and Member of Parliament for Nsawam-Adoagyir, Frank Annoh- Dompreh, says more Members of Parliament from the Majority side of the house have expressed interest in the private members’ motion for a probe into the death of former President John Evans Atta Mills. Four MPs too led by the Majority
Chief Whip filed a private members motion demanding a bi-partisan probe into the demise of Atta Mills who passed on while serving as president of Ghana. The late Mills also died after his return to Ghana from the US for medical care in 2012. In an interview, Annoh-Dompreh said an investigation into circumstances leading to the
death of Atta Mills would help bring finality to rumours surrounding his demise. We are getting more of our members who have expressed interest, so it is going to be more than the four, he said. According to him, there are many rumours and speculations about the late president’s death, and so a probe will be necessary to
clear all doubts. The legislator also discounted claims that the decision to cause a probe into the matter is not genuine. We need to significantly appreciate the fact that he was the Head of State, therefore regardless of the time that has elapsed, to the extent that the matter has not also been resolved and even within the country people still talk about it, we believe that we must as a
matter of urgency get to the bottom of it. We are not also casting any aspersions or clothed in any ulterior motives, he said. Though the cause of his death was not released, Atta Mills had reportedly been battling throat cancer, and in the days leading up to his death, had been in the US for some medical attention. His office announced that Atta Mills died hours after being taken ill.
