Process of change has begun -Prez. Mills
PRESIDENT JOHN Atta Mills says the process of change has already begun and that with God on his side, the process would come to its logical conclusion. According to him, the change Ghanaians yearned for had come and they would feel the impact of change sooner than later. He urged Ghanaians to disregard criticisms that the change had not been beneficial. p> He told party supporters on his arrival in Kumasi, on Sunday morning, that his government is on the ground and that the noise about slow pace of the process is normal and expected. He appealed to Ghanaians to exercise “patience and wait for the benefits of the change.”
The President, in the presence of Maj. Gen.(rtd) J. Nunoo-Mensah, the National Security Advisor and Mrs. Betty Mould Iddrisu, Minister of Justice and Attorney General, reminded the party supporters of the providence of God, who has seen him through four months into his government against criticisms that he would not last a month.
President Mills said he would continue to look up to God for divine direction and announced that he would soon embark on a tour of the regions to express his appreciation to the electorate for voting him into office.
Meanwhile, the founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. J. J. Rawlings has said he has confidence in Prof. Mills' government.
Speaking at a symposium in Kumasi as part of the 10th anniversary celebration, of the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu last Saturday, ex-President Rawlings said he respects the office of President Mills and that his criticisms of the government is not an attempt to spite the government that he helped to bring into power.
According to him, so long as the country was committed to democracy, it was his right to express himself without any hindrance.
