Family, friends and leading members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) will this morning [Friday, July 24, 2020] lay wreaths at the Asomdwe Park to commemorate the eighth year of the passing of the late Professor John Evans Atta Mills.
Prof. Atta Mills died on July 24, 2012, while serving as President of Ghana.
He passed on at the 37 Military Hospital three days after his birthday. He would have been 76 years old on July 21, 2020.
Since his demise, the NDC and family have held public lectures to honour him, but his year’s event was called off following the outbreak of the coronavirus and its attendant restrictions on public gatherings.
Former President John Dramani Mahama has eulogized late President John Evans Atta Mills.
Mr. Mahama took to Facebook to eulogize his former boss saying “You will forever remain in our hearts”.
“You would have been 76 years on July 21, 2020. Prof. Though in eternity, memories of your sterling qualities and principled leadership are still fresh with us. You will forever remain in our hearts. Yours is a soul that cannot be forgotten, a man we cannot celebrate enough!”
