President Mills urges Ghanaians to concentrate on worthy issues
President John Evans Atta Mills on Monday urged Ghanaians to concentrate on worthy issues, instead of speculations and hear-say.
“Let us concentrate on what is worthy and leave aside all these speculations,” said President Mills.
Addressing journalists on arrival in Accra from the US, President Mills said it was unfortunate that anytime he left the country for a while, rumours begun to circulate that he was suffering from some ailment.
This month President Mills began a three-week leave, and spent 10 days with family and friends in the US.
The President observed that periodic medical check up was ideal for everybody, and “at 66, checking on his physical wellbeing did not in the least mean he is not well.
“I can assure you that I am a very healthy person”.
Touching on some comments concerning his administration, President Mills said the issue of assessing the performance of a Government was not simple.
He observed that circumstances during governance varied and coupled with different expectations from the public could make someone highly impressed with the governance process while another would not feel the same.
On the Judiciary, President Mills said it was independent and absolutely respected.
He called on Ghanaians to continue to be patriotic and have goodwill for the nation, adding “national growth and progress counted most”.
President Mills was met on arrival by Vice President John Dramani Mahama, Ministers of State, Chief of Defence Staff, Major General Peter Blay, Inspector General of Police, Paul Quaye, and other government officials.
