President Mills is Ghana’s most decent politician – Ato Forson

Inspite of the concerns by some Ghanaians over the manner in which politics is conducted in the country, Member of Parliament for Ajumako-Enyan-Esiam Mr Cassel Ato Forson has said that there are still some decent personalities in Ghanaian Politics today.

Mr. Forson rubbished speculations that politicians are the most corrupt people on earth, stating that President Mills is one of the few decent politicians the country has ever produced.

The MP stressed that there was no way President Mills could use GHS 90 million to campaign for his election for the flagbearership slot alone, at the expense of other challenging assignments in the country.

Speaking to Adakabre Frimpong Manso on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem on Thursday, Mr. Forson who is the youngest Parliamentarian in the Legislature noted that, the President is on course in his Better Ghana Agenda projects.

The Central Regional Coordinator of Get Atta Mills Endorsed (GAME) is confident President Mills will get the nod to lead the NDC once more when congress is over.

Responding to a question as to how President Mills is funding his campaign, Mr Cassel Ato Forson disclosed that members of GAME have voluntarily decided to assist the President in cash or any other means.

Mr Ato Forson said the delegates have already accepted and voted for the President in advance by helping to fuel cars and providing shelter for the campaign team.

He said President Mills does not need GHS 90 million to lure delegates who have already endorsed him to continue his Better Ghana agenda.

Mr Ato Forson stated that those behind the allegation only want to tarnish the good image and reputation of the President.

He emphasized that the team is not using state funds to run the campaign but depend on little contributions made by donors and supporters.
