Former National Security Advisor to the late President Mills, Brigadier General Joseph Nunoo-Mensah, is unable to deny or confirm if it is true that the then President wanted to resign from office as being claimed by Prof. Kwamena Ahwoi, a senior member of the National Democratic Congress.

“If there was such a meeting, I wasn’t there. Government is big and a lot happens at every time in point and I cannot confirm or deny the President wanted to resign or not,” Brigadier General Joseph Nunoo Mensa stated.

According to the late president’s right hand man, he had several private conversations with the then-President but issues of him [John Atta Mills] attempting to resign from office never come up for discussion as claimed by Prof. Kwamena Ahwoi

“I advised the President on many security issues and also had private conversations with him but he never told me anything that he is resigning. … and the fact is also that because I am also not aware, it doesn’t mean it is true or false,” Brigadier General Joseph Nunoo-Mensah in an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
