Aiyinasi (W/R), Aug. 2, GNA - The Member of Parliament(MP) for Ellembelle, Mr. Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah has urged Ghanaians to give a new face to the conduct of political activities in the country in memory of the late President John Evans Atta Mills.
He observed that the politics of insults, vilification and failure to give credit where it is due, were catalyst to cripple national development.
Mr. Buah who doubles as the Deputy Minister for Energy, made the remark during the one week celebration of President Mills at Aiyinasi, in the Western Region.
Earlier, thousands of NDC party activists, sympathizers and other indigenes of Ellembelle marched through the principal streets of Aiyinasi singing and dancing, accompanied by a brass band.
Mr. Buah likened President Mills to Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah for his selfless leadership and effort to spearhead the development of Nzema land and the nation at large.
He noted that President Mills had the development of Nzema land at heart and appointed a number of Nzemas into topmost positions in his government.
He asked the people to retain the NDC in power because his successor, President John Mahama is also committed to the vision of President Mills.
Mr. Buah regretted that most Ghanaians failed to recognize the good works of President Mills until his demise, saying that "if President Mills were to be in Ghana today, he would tell Ghanaians to unite and stop the politics of insults.
In a tribute, the District Chief Executive for Ellembelle, Mr. Daniel K. Eshun described President Mills as humble, God-fearing, development-oriented, a symbol of peace and unifier.
He said President Mills elevated Dr. Kwame Nkrumah by declaring the "Founder's Day' to immortalize him.
Mr. Eshun appealed to President Mahama to walk on the path of President Mills to foster peace, unity and development.
Representatives from the National Democratic Congress, New Patriotic Party, Convention Peoples Party and the Progressive Peoples Party were in attendance to mourn President Atta Mills.
