President John Evans Atta Mills arrived this afternoon after a return trip to the US saying he has no regrets for sacrificing his holidays to perform an important task on behalf of the nation.
The president told a section of the media at the Kotoka International Airport that the trip to the US was in the supreme interest of the country.
�...I had to take a very important decision. I had a few assignments to undertake in the US. I told myself, why don�t you take advantage of the holidays? Instead of spending your holidays in Ghana, you could kill so many birds with one stone; forgo part of your holidays, go to the US and make the necessary contacts. Which i did...,� the president explained.
Clearly unperturbed by the various interpretations given to his return trip to the US, President Mills maintained that the trip was a "sacrifice" since he had to forego his "Christmas holidays".
�So, I rather sacrificed part of my Christmas holidays to perform an important task on behalf of our dear nation and i have no regrets for so doing,� he added.
President Mills also dismissed assertion business transactions could not be held during the Christmas holidays, insisting, �in the US the 26th is not a holiday; it is rather the 25, so I used those days and which everybody will agree that the week beginning the Christmas is very slow in this country not like the US so I was able to accomplish all the assignments that I had in mind," he said.
