The outspoken Member of Parliament for Lower Manya Krobo, Michael Teye Nyaunu has urged Ghanaians not to make a fuss out of President Atta Mills alleged ailment and his travel outside to America for medical check-up.

The MP who in the past publicly called for the replacement of President Mills as the National Democratic Congress(NDC) Presidential Candidate because of his ill-health condemned the speculation of the President’s demise and the controversy his visit outside has generated saying it would not be in anyone’s interest to wish the President dead.

Rumours of the President Atta Mills death were rife over the weekend after section of the public early in the week were asking of the President’s where-about when he failed to show up in public and also travel to the trouble spot in Hohoe only for him to inform the country on Saturday prior to his departure at the airport that he was traveling for medical check to ready himself for the December general elections.

However speaking to Ghanamps.gov.gh on Monday Hon. Teye Nyaunu expressed disapproval of anyone trying to gain political points out of the President’s state of health and wished him the best of luck as he undergoes medical treatment.

“ He is the father of the land and in such times we should show him support and care and hope that all will be fine with him’’ hon. Teye Nyaunu said.
