NDC cuts ties with Koku Anyidoho’s ‘Atta Mills Institute’
The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has announced its decision to cut ties with the Atta Mills Institute, an organisation set up by the late President John Evans Atta Mills’ former spokesperson Koku Anyidoho, to preserve his legacy and ideals.
According to the NDC, however, it only recognises the newly launched John Evans Atta Mills Memorial Heritage, as the sole institute for the promotion of the ideals and legacies of the late president and not the already-established Atta Mills Institute with the party’s former Deputy General Secretary, Mr Anyidoho, as the Executive Director.
In an interview, the Deputy General Secretary of NDC, Mr Peter Boamah Otokunor, said the newly-launched John Evans Atta Mills Memorial Heritage takes precedent over all other organisations purporting to champion the ideals of the former president.
“As a party, we only recognise the newly-launched memorial heritage as the only organisation for the preservation of the ideals of the first president of the Fourth Republic to have died in office”, Mr Otokunor said.
“No other foundation or institute is in competition with the newly launched memorial heritage to help commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the passing of the late third president of the Republic of Ghana,” he told Accra-based Joy FM.
He added that the heritage is the only organisation that stands for what the late president stood for: a lecturer, politician, family man, and statesman.
“This memorial heritage will better serve the interest of the party in preserving the ideals and legacies of the late president,” he noted
