Founder and President of the Atta Mills Institute, Samuel Koku Anyidoho, has expressed gratitude to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government for taking over the management of the Atta Mills Presidential Library in Cape Coast, the Central regional capital.
The government, through the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) has taken over the management of the Library.
The library which was completed and inaugurated in 2016 was left to rot due to the management’s refusal to pay the contractor on time, making him hold on to the keys.
But Mamdev Ghana Limited, the contractor in charge of the library, has eventually handed the facility over to government for renovation and commissioning.
The library is now in the hands of the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA), the Ghana Museums and Monuments Board (GMMB), and the Ghana Library Authority (GLA) who have resolved to get it running within three months.
Reacting to the issue in an interview with Onua News, former aide to late President Mills, Samuel Koku Anyidoho, said he is now eased because the library will be functioning to protect the legacies of late President Mills.
“This will be one of the legacies of the current government, led by President Akufo-Addo that is protecting the legacies of former presidents,” he hailed.
He said “look at the reconstruction of the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park. Very beautiful and that of the Atta Mills Presidential Library at Cape Coast in the Central region. This will be Akufo-Addo’s legacy and not the Free SHS policy because such will protect the legacies of former presidents,” Mr. Anyidoho explained.
