Renovation of Asomdwee Park is not bad but doing it the family’s involvement bad- Mahama
Former President John Mahama has opined that the current controversy surrounding the tomb of former President John Atta Mills as needless.
Speaking at the 10-annuverssary celebration held in honour of the president by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC)
According to him, the controversies dishonour the legacy of the late president.
“Such a man and his memory are worthy of utmost respect and dignity, even as he rests with his maker. It is therefore a matter of deep regret to me and many others that what should have been a solemn 10th anniversary to celebrate the late former President over his life and draw useful lessons has been heralded by needless controversy about his final resting place.”
According to him, he is not opposed to the idea of giving a facelift to the Asomdwee park, as the late John Atta Mills deserves it.
He however disapproves of this being done without the family’s involvement.
“Any effort to give a facelift to the Asomdwee park where his mortal remains lie and where we are holding this event should be welcomed, as it is no more than Professor Mills would have deserved for his outstanding contributions to our nation’s development and its forward match.”
“It is however untenable for this to be done without recourse to his family while involving individuals whose actions and conducts have only served to drag the signifying professor’s name and memory into needless and unnecessary public controversy,” he added.
