I will prosecute any member of my government engaged in corruption– Atta Mills

The Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Professor John Evans Atta Mills, has given the assurance that he would call for the prosecution of any member of his future government found to have engaged in corruption.
       He was speaking at a mini-rally at Somanya on the third day of his four-day campaign tour of the Eastern Region, which also took him to Asesewa, Akosombo and Nuaso
         Prof. Atta Mills said his government would put up a strong fight against the use of the country as the transit base for banned drugs and check the consumption of those drugs in the country.
        He thanked the people of the Krobo area for their loyalty to the NDC and assured them that a future NDC government would never turn its back against them but would continued all the uncompleted development projects, which it started in the area.
         Prof. Atta Mills called on the people to ensure a peaceful election and be vigilant to ensure that their collective will on the Election Day is protected.
          Ms. Ama Beyniwa Doe, the Women Organizer of the party expressed regret that due to the bad economic policies of the government, farmers in the Krobo area could not buy a gallon of kerosene, salt and fish after selling a basket of cassava as it used to be.
          She said the economy of the country was so poorly managed that, the country was a now the second of the worse countries in Africa hit by guinea worm and also the second dirtiest in Africa. 
          Ms. Doe said a government that had performed well needed not to be distributing cloth and money to the electorate under the cover of darkness to buy their votes.
