Former President John Dramani Mahama has eulogized the late President Evans Fiifi Atta Mills describing him as a comrade, mentor and a friend in commemoration of his 76th birthday.
In a post on his official Facebook page, he wrote “You would have been 76 years today, 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!
Happy birthday my comrade, mentor and friend. Continue to rest well, Sir”
This month marks exactly 8 years when the late president died and the day has been set aside by the Atta Mills memorial committee to remember him with a public lecture and to lay wreaths at his tomb.
John Dramani Mahama was Vice President to Professor Mills from 2009 until his death in July 2012.
He led the NDC in 2000, 2004 and 2008 elections and for the three and half years he served as President of the Republic of Ghana.
Meanwhile, Koku Anyidoho who was the Director of Communications at the Presidency has shared his thoughts about the former president.
“To watch a sitting President and Commander-in-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces, pass away, only reinforced the fact that, death will come when it chooses to come and there is nothing any human being can do about it.
Were it possible to fight death; the Commander-in-chief of the Ghana Armed Forces would have sent out the armed forces to fight death by land, air and sea.
No man can fight death; and this is a fact of life we all have to understand and know that, one fine day, we shall have no option but to beckon to the call of our ancestors and depart to the land beyond”
