Anyidoho: John Mahama “Deliberately” Refused To Build Asomdwee Park

Asomdwee Park

Former Deputy Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Koku Anyidoho is claiming former President John Dramani Mahama intentionally abandoned Ghana’s first presidential mausoleum, the Asomdwee Park in ruins while in office.

The embattled politician made this remark in an interview on TV3 News at 10 after the John Evan Atta Mills Memorial Heritage was launched yesterday.

“John Mahama was president for four and half years but what did he do to remember President Mills. He refused to build Asomdwee park, he deliberately refused to build the Asomdwee park”, he blatantly stated.

A news report by Graphic in 2018 on the Asomdwee park where the late President Mills was buried, indicated that the place was in disarray with some parts of the fencing protecting the late president’s tomb, broken down.

Graphic reported that it had become a haven for hawkers, trespassers, vagrants, and cattle, giving “the place an uncharacteristic blemish”.

According to Anyidoho, the Atta Mill Institute begged President Akufo-Addo to redevelop the place which will be commissioned this year.

The presence of Anyidoho, who claims to be one of the closest to the late John Evan Atta Mills who died while occupying the office of the Presidency, was missing at the ceremony which was attended mainly by members of the NDC.

He revealed he was not invited.

However, while at the comfort of wherever he was, the CEO of the Atta Mills Institute took to his Twitter page calling the organisers of the event “thieves” and threatening to expose them today.

Anyidoho told Martin Asiedu Dartey in the interview that what NDC organised was nothing new since some including himself have been propagating the late Mills’ legacy for a decade now.
