Whilst on a campaign tour of the Evalue Gwira constituency in the Western Region this afternoon, I heard the sad news of the death of the President of the Republic, H.E Prof John Evans Atta Mills.
I have decided to suspend immediately the rest of my campaign tour until further notice. I express my condolence to the First Lady, Madam Naadu Mills and the rest of the family.
I extend my condolences to the government and people of Ghana on the death of the President, and also to the National Democratic Congress party on the loss of their leader.
I call on all Ghanaians to stand united in this moment of national loss and grief.I pray to the Almighty that he gives his soul a peaceful place of abode.
May he rest in peace.
