Except for the documentary or missionary piece running on Crystal TV.  Mr. Crystal Dzirackor and his team at GHOne have decided to run a canonization piece for the late president.  The video starts with the late President Atta Mills walking to the Pearly gates of heaven.  He is lifted on to the staircase by helpers and held aloft by angels as he ascends to the garden of Gethsemane with the rest of the apostles.  Then he rises above them to sit on the right side of God, where he will look after Ghanaians and supervise our deeds.  Now we will win the World Cup, discover more oil and stop the sliding of the cedi.  We will wake up one day and all our roads will be tarred, the potholes will have disappeared, the trash on all the side curbs would have gone and no longer will we have to work for a living.  We will be fed with manna from heaven.  Such is the force to be unleashed by the late President if Crystal TV is allowed by the Most Right Reverends to carry on this kind of nonsense.  May a Christian please call me.
