Last Saturday, chiefs, politicians, reverend ministers and residents of Kpone in the Kpone-Katamanso district, came together to perform the final funeral rites of the late President John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills at Kpone, the capital of the district.
Mr. Mustapha Alhassan, deputy Youth Organiser of the Kpone-Katamanso branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), read a tribute in memory of the late President, describing him as a man who never quits until the job is done.
According to him, under the leadership of the late President, he gave a new meaning to the word humility, and 'He served us and demanded not to be served,' adding, passion took on a different cloak under his presidency.
'In his request to make Ghana a better nation, he was subjected to thorough criticisms, insulted and ridiculed day in and day out. A lot of good things are now being said about this noble man after his demise, both nationally and internationally,' he noted.
Preaching the sermon, the Most Rev. Stephen Laweh Adjovu said the death of President John Evans Atta Mills was a divine call ordained by God.
He said from 1966 to 1978, a lot of things happened in this country, and therefore, God was looking for somebody to intervene as a unifier for the people of this country, until in 1996, when the late President appeared on the scene.
Just like King David in the Old Testament of the Bible, President Mills had to go through a lot of training to mature into the kind of person God wanted to use to deliver the people of Ghana into the Promised Land.
