Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson joined the Ghanaian community in Sierra Leone to sign the book of condolence in respect of the late president of the Republic of Ghana, Prof. John Evans Fifi Atta Mills.
The actress who was in Sierra Leone to shoot a movie when the sudden death of the president got to her via telephone calls expressed shock upon receiving the news of the death of the man she described as a father.
Speaking on Gold Power Drive on Monday, Lydia Forson disclosed that the words she wrote in the book of condolence were not motivated by her political affiliation adding that “I felt I was talking to him. It will be hard to find a politician like him, there is something intriguing about him”.
The condolence reads as follows;
“Not once did I doubt, not once did I mock, not once did I lose hope, not once did I despair, not once did I stop believing in your vision. I believed in your vision till the very end and your death has left a hole in my heart. It has also ignited in me the fire to fight for Ghana and Africa, and when my heart can beat no more, I hope I live a legacy as big as you did. I love you”.
According to Lydia Forson, she has been admiring the president for what he stood for as a man of peace indicating that “meeting the president is something I looked forward to but it never happened”.
“The first thing I said when I heard his political speech was that, this is a man who is not a politician”, she added.
