Deputy Minister of Water Resources, Works and Housing in charge of Housing has hit back at the Minority Leader of Parliament, Hon. Osei-Kyei Mensah-Bonsu for accusing late President John Evans Atta Mills of culpability in the Atiwa by-election violence.

In commemoration of the third anniversary of the death of President John Evans Atta Mills, Hon. Samuel Okudjeto Ablakwa, eulogising the deceased in Parliament on Tuesday, said the legacy of late President, ‘remains ever relevant’.

He added that “the late President Mills taught us to abhor vindictiveness and not seek to pay back our political opponents in their own coin”; thus the late President Mills was not corrupt and he always cared for the youth.

"...As we all come round to condemn the gruesome murder of the Upper East Regional Chairman of the NPP, Mr. Adams Mahama (may his soul rest in peace) and the scenes of violence that characterised the Talensi by-election a few weeks ago, we cannot help but admit that the Prof. Mills’ style of politics is what is good for the health of our democracy and our nation. Our politics must be nothing but peaceful and must have no place for warmongers and terrorist-like groups," he added.

Following that tribute read in Parliament, the Minority Leader, Hon Osei-Kyei Mensah-Bonsu pontificated that though it will be unfair to speak ill of the dead, it is equally important not to demonize personalities in order to praise the dead.

The Suame NPP MP however mentioned that under the late President Mills did the Atiwa by-election conflict broke; reiterating that the Agbogloshie clash happened under the watch of the late President Mills.

Hon Osei-Kyei Mensah-Bonsu however on Okay Fm’s "Ade Akye Abia" Morning Show described the tribute of the Deputy Minister of Education in charge of Tertiary as a comic relief.

But reacting to the comment of the Minority Leader, the Deputy Minister in charge of Housing, Hon. Sampson Ahi on the same platform alleged that the Atiwa by-election conflict was orchestrated by the NPP flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo.

He based the allegation on the fact that Nana Akufo-Addo attributed happenings in Atiwa by-election as one of the action which will take place in subsequent elections.

Atiwa by-election was orchestrated by Akufo-Addo and his people; he is the architect of what happened in Atiwa and don’t blame it on the late President John Evans Atta Mills”, he alleged.
