President Atta Mills Is In Heaven – Ghanaians Take Heart

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Mills was born July 21, 1944 in Ekumfi Otuam in Ghana’s Central Region.

The sorrow of the faithful
is not that of permanent loss,
but the tender sense of sadness
that comes in saying good-bye for now
to someone we love.
May today’s sorrow give way
to the peace and
comfort of God’s love.

FROM WATCHING TB JOSHUA AND ALL OUR READERS

Mills was born July 21, 1944 in Ekumfi Otuam in Ghana’s Central Region.

Before his political career, he was an accomplished scholar receiving both a bachelors and law degree from the University of Ghana, a doctorate from the University of London, and the prestigious Fulbright scholarship to Stanford University in the United States.

Mills served as Ghana’s vice president during the administration of Jerry Rawlings from 1997 to 2000.
He had been nominated by the ruling party to run for president again in an election expected later this year.

He leaves behind a wife and a son.

    So so sad to hear on the Chinese CCTV news cast of the great lost to the Sub-region with regards to his home going of Prof. John Even Atta Mills! Again i know he’s irreplaceable as everyone had his or her own distinct characteristic that he shares with no one even in his grave! Let’s us take heart and wake up to the reality that this is the only medium each and everyone will have to used!

    Ghana has proved that it’s developing. Don’t look at this man’s throat cancer. Look at his achievements.

    74. We the afflicted are narrow minded because we do not realise we are such – That’s we come here to exchange ideas.

    I am very much surprised by the immediate constitutionally mediated transfer of power to the vise president than the death of the president. Bravo Ghana!! I wish the same to happen in Ethiopia & the whole Africa.

    RIP – President Mills. I visited Ghana & still fondly remember 2009 weekend when President Obama visited. Prof. Mills must have felt so proud. Politically, Ghana is slowly moving forward but Ghanaians need to influence its governing elite not to squander a disproportionate amount of tax revenues on themselves & wisely invest oil revenues by collaborating with overseas experts on infrastructure.

  8. Apostle WTM says:

    Those who wait upon the lord will renew their strength,they will mount up with wings as eagles…Isaiah40:31. It was a blessed thing that he had established a strong relationship with the man of God Prophet T.B Joshua,who I believe was his mentor. No doubt, he is in Heaven,a very rare thing to happen to many a politian.

    THE LATE PRZ EVEN MILLS WITH HIS BLACK PALM INFECTION, LATER HE MET THE NEWS EDITORS AND STOOD ON HIS FEET THROUGH OUT THE MEETING.. RECENTLY WHEN HE WAS LIVING FOR USA FOR MEDICAL CHECK HIS VOICE SOUNDED CLEAR, HE CAME BACK WITH DISTORT AND WEIRD VOICE… DID JOGGING AT THE AIRPORT AND PROMISED THAT HE IS FIT AND STRONG TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER…COULD THAT BE ASSASSINATION OR HE DECEIVED AS?

  10. Paul says:

    I hope the people of Ghana take courage for the lost of their president. Let his death not impede the long lasting democracy they enjoy.

  11. Pauline says:

    Things fall apart…the centre can not hold…the falcon can not hear the falconer and mere anarchy is loosed upon my homeland Ghana. Oh…how are the mighty fallen and brave young warriors turned into virgin maidens of the brothel! Unprecedented tragedy! RIP Atta Mills…you were never the great leader that most Ghanaians aspired for…but still fare thee well.

    RIP prof Mills. it is quite bitter that some people somewhere are making fun of the the death of a man who has contributed to the democratic growth of the people of Africa. it is illiterates who still believe that racism should be the order of the this century. the world is growing so my advice to racists is that they should grow up or else they cant fit into this and the coming century.
