Today, July 24, 2018, marks the sixth anniversary of the death of the late president Prof. John Evans Atta Mills.

 In remembering the late Atta Mills, Former President John Mahama in a post on his Facebook wall described him as an epitome of peace, nobility, and equity.

He wrote, "Six years ago today, your death was a most earthshaking moment in Ghana's political history. You epitomized the principles of peace and treatment of all Ghanaians equally no matter their political affiliation. Those principles you represented, are even more relevant today than ever before."

Prof. Mills died on July 24, 2012, five months before the 2012 presidential and parliamentary elections.

President Mills remains one of the most illustrious presidents in the history of Ghana.

Since his short tenure of office, Ghana was documented to be the fastest growing economy in the world as the Cedi had stood marginally high against the dollar and inflation at a single digit.

His death saw thousands of Ghanaians including hundreds of members from the diplomatic corps show their last respects.
