In honour of President John Evans Atta Mills, the government directs that all should observe a minute's silence on Tuesday, 31st July, 2012 at 2:15pm (14:15 GMT).
The said day and time marks one week and the exact time that President Atta Mills passed away.
A statement signed by Deputy Information Minister James Agyanim Boateng on Monday said, wherever people find themselves throughout Ghana at 2:15pm on Tuesday, 31st July, 2012, they are to observe a minute's silence as directed.
The statement also admonished Ghanaians to say a prayer afterwards for the soul of President Atta Mills, who worked selflessly towards bettering the lives of Ghanaians.
Government further urged the electronic media, as far as is reasonably possible, are also encouraged to observe the minute silence.
