Ministers and government appointees in Mills’ administration pay tribute to him

 

Some young ministers and government appointees in the late president Mills’ administration have paid a glowing tribute to him for his commitment, dedication and selfless leadership attributes.

 

 

They expressed gratitude to the late president for giving them the opportunity to contribute their quota to the development of the country.

 

Deputy Minister of Sports, Dr. Omane Boamah told Gold News that the late president had confidence in the youth. Dr. Omane Boamah also prayed that Ghanaians will emulate the good leadership traits of the late president Mills.

 

He said even though some people opposed the late president’s decision on the youth ministerial appointment, the late president was resolute adding that “I have come to respect Mr. Kwame Mpiani who is a leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who saw very early what others could not see when he said he Mills was not a corrupt man”.

 

Deputy Minister for communication, Haruna Iddrisu said the youth of the nation will profoundly miss the values, philosophies and vision of building a better Ghana. He is however confident President Mahama will continue to pursue the better Ghana agenda.

 

A Deputy Minister of Water Resources, Works and Housing, Dr. Hannah Louisa Bisiw read her tribute to the late president Mills.

 

“Stand firm, your living example that you exhibited mentored and inspired us. You are and will still be our role model to many especially the youth. You threw away political vindictiveness and set your own standard of leadership”, she said.

 

Also reading his tribute, a Deputy Coordinator of the National Youth Employment Programe, Prince Derek Adjei added that “the encouragement Prof. Mills gave to the Ga-Adamgbe youth in redeeming our lands will not be forgotten”.
