Updated: Jul 20, 2021

The Founder and Chief Executive Officer (C.E.O) of the Atta Mills Institute (AMI), Koku Anyidoho has commended President Akufo-Addo for fulfilling his promise of re-constructing the Asomdwee Park in memory of the Late Former President John Evans Atta Mills.

According to him, the Akufo-Addo government, a year ago promised to ensure that it gives the final resting of the Late President a face-lift hence instructing the leadership of the Coastal Development Authority (CODA) to reconstruct the facility.

Speaking exclusively to Thinknewsonline.com at the 9 Years On; Entrenching a solid legacy, re-construction of Asomdwee Park, he said “There was a master-plan which was to see the Asomdwee park being re-constructed in July 2013 but it is baffling how 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 have all elapsed and we are now working on this facility. One year down the line, you can see that Asomdwee Park is transforming”

Mr. Anyidoho also mentioned that he is hopeful that works on the Asomdwee Park will be completed before July 2022.

Responding to whether or not he was disappointed in the NDC government for failing to reconstruct the Asomdwee Park, he said “It’s not about me. Let Ghanaians tell that story. I have given you the chronology of things; what should have happened and what didn’t happen. That is the story, I want to tell, it is not about laying blame at somebody’s doorstep but the facts will remain; one Administration didn’t and another Administration is doing it”

He further described the Asomdwee Park as a national monument and not a property of Koku Anyidoho.

On his part, Site Architect, Owula Nii Nortei Adumuah said “As an Architect, the first thing I noticed was that the fencing was not in good shape so we are looking at giving it a face-lift so it personifies the personality we are talking about”

He also added that the re-construction will see a space where persons who access the facility can tell the history of late Mills.

Mr. Adumuah further hinted that the Asomdwee Park when completed will have a ‘celebratory entry’ adding that some Adinkra and Ga symbols will be used for it.

“What we also looked at is enhancing where the tomb is. We will have some symbols there. We have also introduced some water features” he said.
