As the eighth anniversary of the death of the former President, John Evans Atta Mills draws close, there have been renewed calls for a probe into what has been described as his ‘mysterious’ death by many.

Joining the calls is a Deputy Information Minister, Pius Enam Hadzide who believes Ghanaians deserve to know what caused the death of President Mills on July 24 2012.

The absence of a full-blown investigation into the death of the then-sitting president has fueled the suspicion among some Ghanaians that something untoward occurred leading to his untimely demise.

Recently, the Bono Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe (Abronye DC) accused former President John Mahama, who was Vice-President of the late Prof Mills as knowing about the death of the former President.

Mr. John Mahama, in turn wrote to the Criminal Investigation Department of the Ghana Police Service to invite Abronye for questioning over those claims and others which suggested the NDC flagbearer is plotting to kill some NPP bigwigs.

Speaking on Accra-based Okay FM on Thursday, May, 21, 2020, Mr. Hadzide argued that probing the death of Prof Mills will bring finality to the matter.

“The death of every individual is very crucial and the death of every Ghanaian must become a matter of significance to all of us. Especially the death of a President. John Evans Atta Mills was President at the time he passed and so I feel it will be an indictment on all of us as a nation if we are asked what caused the death of our President and we are unable to give any good response. We have enthroned kings but, likely, we do not have any arrangement to protect them since it is such an important personality, I think we should investigate.”

“Currently, the lawyers of the former President have written to the CID that they are being accused, which shows the former President Mahama even wants an investigation. When this matter is investigated, that is how we can bring finality to the matter. Why I think there should be an investigation is because one he is a citizen and secondly he was a sitting President and so Ghanaians are entitled to an explanation into the death so that if there was any mistake made, we can learn from them and prevent the recurrence of something like this,” he said.
