- NDC's Koku Anyidohu says the anniversary was celebrated only by family and friends
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is making the claim that government has not contributed in any way to the commemoration of the 5th anniversary of Atta Mills's death.
Deputy general secretary of the NDC, Koku Anyidohu says the entire event to mark the death of the former president's death has been commemorated by only family and friends of him.
"If the government is supporting elsewhere and in any other way, I am not aware. As far as I am concerned, what will happen at Kuku Hills, what will happen at the Asomdwe Park is purely borne out of what we friends and associates of the late president think that we ought to do to remember him,” Koku Anyidoho lamented in an interview with Citi FM.
Meanwhile, a special wreath laying ceremony is expected to be held in honor of Atta Mills at the Asomdwe Park in Accra today after which a special meeting is expected to be held at the Osu Kuku Hills where Atta Mills' office was located when he was leader of the NDC ahead of his 2008 election victory.
Atta Mills is feared to have died on July 24th at the 37 Military Hospital at the age of 68 after reports indicated that he was battling a complicated form of throat cancer.
Meanwhile, some family members of the former president are pushing for a thorough investigation into the circumstances leading to his death as they claim to have suspected some foul play on the part of unknown persons.
