Ghanaians have been urged to let the gentle and peaceful nature of the late President John Evans Atta Mills to permeate the lives and nature of Ghanaians during the build up to his burial and the period after, in order to ensure a sustained development of the country.
Ms Esther Cobbah, Chief Executive of Stratcomm Africa, a leading total communications solutions provider, made the call after signing the Book of Condolence in honour of the late President at the State House in Accra on Wednesday.
She had earlier laid a flower at the foot of the picture of the later President at the venue. She was optimistic that a peaceful society, as the one Professor Mills created, was key to developing our country. She added that: ' by this we can have investors come into our country to develop and bring into being the better Ghana he envisioned for us all.'
'Prof. was a peaceful man, he feared God in all that he did and he made this know wherever he went. We must allow this kind of attitude reflect in our societies,' Ms Cobbah noted.
In her condolence, she noted that 'Prof Mills declared his love for Christ and sought to govern the nation as such and, therefore, had no doubt that God has welcomed him warmly into his bosom, and into a place where absolute peace reigns'.
Prof. John Atta Mills passed away at the 37 Military Hospital last week July 21, 2012, after being taken ill in the morning. Burial is set for Friday August 10, 2012.
