In her presentation, Mrs. Mary Oduro in a passionate tone of voice declared 'Daddy, you're always in our thoughts, especially your good works and visions shall not be forgotten. May you be at peace in Gods arm'
In the opinion of most Ghanaians, the sudden death of the President has brought forth a culture of discipline, unity and nationalism. On this note, it is expected that, great lessons would be learnt.
Find below utterances and quotes of the deceased Prof. Mills that should remind the nation to foster peace and unity even in his (Mills) absence.
'I have always said that I will be President for all Ghanaians whether they voted for me or not, and without consideration for which part of the country they come from. It will be my duty as President to heal wounds and unite our dear nation. I intend to pursue relentlessly all avenues for entrenching peace and unity in all parts of the country as I am enjoined by the constitution to do.'
'As a people, our greatest achievements have come when we have lived up to the ideals that unite rather than divide us and have attached ourselves to a common sense purpose. Let this day not just see us enjoying just the holiday part of it; let us find time to reflect on the way forward as we strive to build a Better Ghana. We must reflect on the legacies that our forebears bequeathed to us; consider what we have added to that legacy, and commit ourselves to leaving a solid legacy for the generations after us.'
'My solemn pledge to the youth of Ghana is that Atta Mills and his government will do everything possible to make sure that Ghana remains a haven of peace and unity. The rich talents and rich human qualities given to us by God will enable us overcome the challenges posed by the global economic downturn and our inadequacies in the management of the nation's economy.'
'My brothers and Sisters, I am a Man of Peace. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will I leave with you all.' Legacy of 'Asomdwehene' Prof.J.E.A.Mills.
