President Mills Cautions Against Distraction

President John Evans Atta Mills yesterday cautioned against acts of national detraction and pledged to allow the law to deal with such acts to the letter.
He remained resolute in his belief to be civil to one another, the rule of law and due process but warned that no one should take his respect for peaceful co-existence as weakness, timidity and unwillingness or inability to enforce the law.
 'I've instructed the law enforcement agencies to apply the law to the letter,' President Mills said, as he addressed executives of the Ghana Journalists Association and some senior media practitioners, who paid a courtesy call on him at the Castle, Osu, in Accra.
The GJA called on the President to assure him of the co-operation of the media with Government to promote its better Ghana agenda.
President Mills reminded Ghanaians that despite the dislike by some people on his assumption to the office of the President, his victory is the verdict of the electorate in the last December general elections.
Ghanaians also installed the Government, and the win of the ruling party also followed the tenets of democracy, which Ghanaians must accept.
A section of Ghanaians must also not decide that they have the divine right to rule the nation and expect the law to be twisted in their favour.
