A memorial service for the late president and leader Professor John Evans Atta Mills was held on July 24 by the National Democratic Congress.
The former President’s memorial service was conducted in Asomdwee Park, and party members, political personalities, and Accra residents all gathered there to pay their condolences.
From 2009 until 2012, Ghana was led by the late President Mills, a well-known figure in the country’s politics. The loving moniker “Asomdweehene” (King of Peace) was given to him. It was generally known that he was dedicated to democratic values, social justice, and inclusive government.
Speaking at the start of the memorial ceremony were notable NDC figures who offered touching experiences and memories of their time working with President Mills. They applauded his humility, unshakable dedication to the advancement of the country, and desire for improving the lot of common Ghanaians.
The new NDC leadership promised to continue the battle for social justice, economic growth, and sound administration while emphasising the value of carrying forward President Mills’ legacy and beliefs.
Fifi Kwetey, the party’s general secretary, gave a statement during the memorial ceremony in which she urged party members to adopt the way of life of the late President, who passed away while in office on July 24, 2012.
President Mills was praised by former president John Dramani Mahama in an address, who called him a respectable leader whose absence could never be replaced.
