4 NPP MPs demand bi-partisan probe into Atta Mills' death

Annoh-Dompreh says the move is 'patriotic, well intended'

Samuel Atta Mills accuses NPP MPs of 'crying more than the bereaved'


Former Deputy Minister of Communications, Felix Kwakye Ofosu, has criticized the move by four New Patriotic Party Members of Parliament who have filed a motion demanding a probe into the death of John Evans Atta Mills.

According to him, the inquest being demanded is complete utter nonsense.

He also stated that the move is a diversionary tactic being employed by the NPP MPs from pressing challenges confronting the country.

“The NPP MPs’ motion for an inquest into the death of President Mills is complete and utter nonsense. It is a senseless attempt at wasting precious time while diverting attention from the most important issues of the economy and the livelihoods of Ghanaians,” Felix Kwakye Ofosu posted on his social media timeline.

The MPs are Majority Chief Whip, Frank Annoh-Dompreh, Second Deputy Majority Whip, Habib Iddrisu, Mpraeso MP, Davis Ansah Poku, and Tema Central MP, Hanson Yves Nii Noi Nortey.
