The Board Chair of the John Evans Atta Mills Memorial Heritage, Dr. Alex Percival Segbefia, has said that the organization is working hard to inculcate the values and principles of President John Evans Atta Mills in the Ghanaian society. He revealed this on Monday at a press conference in Accra to enumerate plans of the organization to mark the 10th Anniversary of the passing of the President John Evan Atta Mills.

Dr. Segbefia asserted that, the 10th year commemoration is a national affair for the people of Ghana as stated by Nana Kobina Nketsia IV, Chief of Essikado who chaired the launch of the Memorial Heritage in Accra recently. He said the era of President John Evans Atta Mills as President of Ghana was “an era of inclusiveness, an era when we had a man of character as President and a man of morality and sincerity, and to him Ghana mattered, and because of that, he cut across many political divisions”.

The 16 regions of Ghana have been clustered into five groups for purposes of the Regional Commemorative Lectures.

He urged all Ghanaians to participate fully in the Lectures when it gets to their turn in their clustered regions in memory of a unique, selfless, and distinguished President of Ghana, a man of character who stood tall and brought dignity, inclusiveness and character into Ghanaian politics.
