NDC To Commemorate Passing Of Atta Mills At Asomdwee Park
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has announced it will be holding a ceremony to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the passing of the late and former President of Ghana, John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills.
The third president of the fourth republic died on July 24, 2012.
The NDC plans to undertake a wreath-laying ceremony on July 24, 2022, at the Asomdwee Park, the same day the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo will be commissioning the once abandoned but now refurbished Park.
The ceremony will be held at 1 pm, the NDC said in a statement.
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.
Former Deputy Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Koku Anyidoho in an interview in February 2022 claimed former President John Dramani Mahama who was vice to Atta Mills, intentionally left the Asomdwee Park to rot when he took office as President.
Anyidoho said that the Atta Mills Institute had to implore President Akufo-Addo to save the first presidential mausoleum during the interview.
In a recent post, Anyidoho announced the park was ready for commissioning.
“The beauty and splendour of Asomdwee Park is hitting the right crescendo just b4 the official commissioning by His Excellency President Akufo-Addo on July 24th. I won’t stop thanking God for ALL the great things He continues to do in the life of the Atta-Mills Institute”, he tweeted.
