Mills tells government to investigate “hit list”

Former Vice President John Evans Atta Mills, National Democratic Congress (NDC) Presidential Candidate, says under no circumstance would his government take the life of any Ghanaian because of politics.
     He said life was the most precious thing the Creator has given to humanity and nobody would be sacrificed on the altar of politics since it was against God's law and, therefore, charged the Government to investigate and come out with the truth concerning the "hit list".
     Former Vice President Mills, who was addressing a rally at Tarkwa on Wednesday, said he would rule Ghana with the truth, the fear of God and humility.
     Prof. Mills said he would reduce further downwards the prices of petroleum products because of the negative effects high fuel prices had on the economy.
     He promised to address the teachers' problems; expand the National Youth Employment Programme, make the National Health Insurance Scheme more affordable and expand the School Feeding Programme to cover all schoolchildren and ensure that they are fed with nutritious meals and not maggot-infested beans and tin-tomatoes, whose shelf-life has expired.
     Prof Mills pledge to resolve the problems of Galamsey operators so that they could go about their operations with harassment.
     He said NDC had 114 seats in Parliament compared to 107 of the NPP, adding,   that the elephant was already out of government and was on its way back to the forest.
     Prof Mills said some people have been lying about his health and even said he was dead, adding, "I am as fit as a fiddle".
     Nana Kwabena Obob, Deputy Western Regional Chairman of NDC, told polling station agents of NDC to be vigilant and not monetary inducement from the NPP functionaries and allow them to manipulate the polls. 
     Prof. Mills later went to Prestea, Wassa Dawurapong, Himan and Bawdie before proceeding to Asankragua, all in the Western Region.
