FLASHBACK: President Mills buying kenkey at Nima market in Accra
President John Evans Atta Mills is nowhere to be found as communal conflicts turn the country into the slaughter’s slab, with death tolls rising by the day.
The raging fire in Hohoe in the Volta region is far from over, as over 2000 people have been internally displaced, seeking refuge in nearby communities.
Within a space of less than two weeks, conflicts have virtually taken over the country, while the President is missing in action.
The absence of President Mills, who was last seen in public when the Nigerian registered Allied Cargo Airline Boeing 727-200 aircraft crashed at the El Wak Stadium on Sunday, June 3, 2012, is raising questions about his whereabouts.
President John Evans Atta Mills
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Manhyia, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh said President Mills was perhaps in deep slumber, snoring while scores of Ghanaians were being killed across the country.
Dr Opoku Prempeh described Mills as a “sleeping president” who was apparently not aware of the numerous security and socio-economic problems that had engulfed the country.
He said if President Mills were not in a “comatose” state, he would have seen and spoken on the increasing spate of insecurity, lawlessness and violence across the country which had led to the loss of lives and properties.
Speaking on Metro TV’s ‘Good Morning Ghana’ Programme on Wednesday, Dr. Opoku Prempeh bemoaned the deafening silence of President Mills over the current state of insecurity in the country.
