People in the Eastern Region on Wednesday were seen wearing T shirt, cloth of the late mills and red armband around their heads and arms which indicates that really our late former President Mills is father for all commemorating his one year anniversary
As early seven o?clock am heavy rain storm hit of Koforidua which is the venue for the gathering for the commemoration, people were busy preparing for the occasion, most of the commercial vehicles were tired with red bands.
The programme started around 10:00am as soon as the rain stopped. Regional executives of NDC with party members were seen heading towards the venue which was Koforidua Jackson Park.
At the ceremony the Eastern Regional Minister Hon. Helen Adjoa Ntoso elaborated that during the reign of our late former President Evans Atta Mills Ghanaians insulted him on airwaves especially his opponents calling him all sort of names, as hypocrite, which even at his point of death, ?to me he was a brave man, trustworthy, honest and above all God fearing. He always puts God first in whatever he does,? he said.
According to him, there is the need to appreciate people who sacrifice for the country like the late president Mills, honour them whiles they are alive.
The head pastor of Rain Power International Ministry Rev. Dr. Samuel Kwakwa also said the late president Mills was father for all, which Ghanaians refused to acknowledge, but rather reign insults on him till the time of his death.
His death, he noted has been a shock to most of them but they know God gives and? in ?all things we should give thanks to God, because he knows what is best for his children, his ruin still continues with our current president John Dramani Mahama who will led the country peacefully as Mills did.?
Taking his turn the NDC Regional Organizer Bismark Tawiah Boateng noted that Mills was a man of peace, he always preaches for peace, and that it is worth celebrating his one year.
