A group, calling itself Cape Coast Youth Development Association in the Central region, has threatened to soon embark on a demonstration if the Atta Mills Memorial Library is not opened for public use.
According to the chairman of the non-partisan group, Mr Stephen Forson, the memorial library, which has been locked up since its construction, is deteriorating which does not befit the legacies of the late President.
“This action is to send a message to both the NDC and the New Patriotic Party, who have all refused to take bold steps to ensure that the library is opened. If they can’t handle it, we will urge the government to handover the library to the youth of Cape Coast for us to manage it,” he stated on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem show.
On his part, the former Central Regional chairman of the NDC, Mr Allotey Jacobs attributed the closure of the facility to debts being owed.
“The contractor, who worked on the project per our sources, locked up the place and took the keys away, denying University of Cape Coast which was ordered to take charge of the building, access to the two-storey building,” he disclosed.
