Movement for Equal Rights and Justice wish to send its message of condolence to the bereaved family of our late President, Prof. John Evans Atta Mills, who died at the 37 Military Hospital on Tuesday, 24th July, 2012.

We also wish to call on the President, H.E. John Dramani Mahama to immediately institute an independent investigation into the strange and unprecedented death of our late President Mills.

There have been several insinuations regarding the presidentís death. Rumors roaming around have it that, at the time the President collapsed at the Castle, the Close Circuit Television (CCTV) had stopped working. Also when he was being taken to the 37 Military Hospital, no dispatch rider was available at the Castle.

What is exasperating in this tragic death is that, at the time they got to the Hospital, the handlers told the Hospital officials that it was a Senior Government official who had been involved in an accident. According to the report, the late President was also taken to the maternity ward.

This would be unfortunate if it is ascertained to be true. Ghanaians must know the truth and it should be fast without any shred of delay. Until the demise of the late president, many Ghanaians knew of his ill-health but did not expect his death at around this time. Many concerned Ghanaians were asking of the condition of the President. But some elements within the Castle would not spare anyone who dared to know the truth.

No less a person than Nana Akufo Addo, was vilified and maligned for wishing his former class mate well, when he decided to visit the United States of America for a routine check- up.

We believe that there are many questions to be answered, and some people must be held responsible, if the rumor roaming about it the truth!
Thank you.
