NDC has failed in projecting Prof Mills as a hero – NPP man

A member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Communications team, Ernest Kumi says the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has failed in projecting late Professor Atta Mills as the hero he is in Ghana’s political history.

“NDC is projecting Prof Mills as zero and not a hero because if they cherish his achievements and legacies, they would have at least proved something to Ghanaians,” he said.

To Mr Kumi, the actions and inaction of the NDC make it evident that they are ashamed of the kind of man the late president was.

“They could have at least organised annual lectures in his honour, but you don’t even hear them observe a minute silence at their party’s event for him but they rode on this man’s back and used him to win election 2008,” he stated on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem show.

“It is about time we begin to celebrate our heroes in a befitting way because it is only unserious countries that do not celebrate their heroes. Maybe, the government can begin by considering the refurbishment of Prof Mills’ Asomdwe Park and Library which have been abandoned,” he urged.
