The Member of Parliament for Tema East constituency, Daniel Nii Kwatei Titus-Glover has joined calls for the mortal remains of late President John Evans Atta Mills to be moved from Asomdwee Park to the military cemetery.
In his view, the ‘King of Peace’ (Asomdweehene) cannot be resting at a place which is now a haven for criminals and prostitutes.
The sorry state of Asomdwee Park has compelled the family of the late Mills to consider exhuming his body for a befitting burial in his hometown at Ekumfi Otuam in the Central region.
Family spokesperson, Paul Ansah Ackom, who visited the presidential mausoleum, bemoaned how prostitutes, wee smokers, cattle and rodents, have invaded the place.
He wondered why the State is paying his brother back this way after years of service to mother Ghana.
In support, Mr Titus-Glover on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem, Monday said the reburial is long overdue.
He explained that, the late Prof. Mills, given his stature, should have been buried at the military cemetery at Burma Camp in Accra.
“Late Mills is very lonely at Asomdwee Park so I support the family’s position of reburial. The military cemetery in my opinion is the best,” he stressed.
Mr Titus-Glover also appealed to the government to support the family to ensure the late Mills is given a befitting burial.
