Tsatsu's sentence cannot dampen my spirit - Atta Mills

Prof. John Evans Atta Mills has made a dedication to jailed former Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), CEO, Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata, and said even though he was sad, the incident cannot dampen his spirit.

Prof. Atta Mills said this when he took his turn Wednesday evening to address the public on his plans for the country on June 18, 2008 at the Alisa Hotel where the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) and Joy FM are organising the event which is currently going on. Joy FM and GTV are covering it live.

He said, "I dedicate this to my good friend Tsatsu Tsikata. And if any one thought that his sentence today will dampen my spirit, they will be disappointed."

Mr. Tsikata was today sentenced by an Accra Fast Track High Court to a five-year jail term for wilfully causing financial loss to the State.

Mr. Tsikata whose counsel was not in court, personally applied for bail, but the court refused him bail and advised him to instead, file an appeal against the verdict.
