An embattled member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho, has taunted the brother of the late former President JEA Mills, Sam Atta Mills.
He has asked Sam Atta Mills to tell Ghanaians what truly killed his brother, since, according to the report, the former President died in his hands.
Ahead of Professor’s 10th anniversary, Koku Anyidoho has bared his teeth at Sam Atta-Mills and the NDC has warned them not to go above and beyond themselves to do anything to cover their hypocrisy.
In a series of strongly-worded tweets, Mr Anyidoho, who is the Executive Director of the Atta Mills Institute, asked Sam Atta-Mills to disclose the death of the late Atta-Mills, as he warned that no one tampered with the Asomdwe Park, the final resting place of the former President.
“Sammy Atta-Mills says I am a buffoon? I see! Let him produce the autopsy report of the late President Atta-Mills.”
“Sammy Atta-Mills should tell us, what killed his brother. He says, his brother died in his hands: he should tell us how his brother died.”
“I am happy that Sammy Atta-Mills has opened the can of worms that I have been trying very hard not to open.”
“Sammy Atta-Mills has NEVER celebrated his brother; he wants me to tell the story of his wickedness towards his brother?”
“I am happy that President Akufo-Addo has built Asomdwee Park. John Mahama deliberately REFUSED to build it.”
“I will NOT use Asomdwee Park for partisan politics. It is a big shame that Sammy Atta-Mills has neglected the burial place of his brother, and is using the work the State is doing for dirty politics – in support of John Dramani Mahama.”
“The Atta-Mills Institute is not selling any cloth. Please don’t buy any cloth from criminals and thieves who want to make money from the 10th Anniversary of the death of President Atta-Mills”
Sam Atta Mills accused Koku Anyidoho and the Coastal Development Authority of tampering with the tomb on Tuesday, July 19.
The Member of Parliament for Komenda-Edina-Eguafo Abirem, at a press conference in Parliament, said:
“A group calling itself Atta Mills Institute that the family doesn’t even recognize, and Coastal Development Authority, have gone to break the grave of President John Evans Atta Mills. They have removed the tomb, and they claim that they are rebuilding it.
“My question is that we have a family tradition. Now that they have touched someone’s grave, is the body still in there? Who has the body? Why will you touch the body without informing the family head? Under whose authority?
“Why do they want us to always go through grief? This is a former president, why will the government allow this to happen? This is an insult to the family and the nation.”
The late former President Prof John Evan Atta Mills died on July 24, 2012 at 2:15 pm after a short illness.
